Project Instructions

Step 1 Slide one 10mm opaque ruby round onto a head pin. Make a wrapped loop. Repeat 14 more times for a total of 15 ruby drops.

Step 2 Slide one 8mm opaque pink glass round onto an eye pin. Make a loop. Repeat 14 more times for a total of 15 bright pink drops.

Step 3 Slide one 8mm bright pink round onto an eye pin. Make a wrapped loop.

Step 4 Slide one 8mm pink luster round onto an eye pin. Make a simple loop. Repeat 14 more times for a total of 15 pink luster links.

Step 5 Slide two 8mm pink luster rounds onto an eye pin. Make a bend in the eye pin so that it becomes U-shaped. Make a simple loop.

Step 6 Place an eye pin through one of the holes of an antique silver- plated crystal slider and make a 90° bend in the wire about ¼" from the loop. Bend the wire so that it conforms to the shape of the slider, with the eye of the eye pin extending perpendicularly to the path of the wire in the hole. Bring the tail of the wire around and wrap the neck of the eye pin to secure the eye pin to the slider.

Step 7 Pass an eye pin through the second set of holes in the slider, slide one 8mm pink luster round onto the eye pin as well another slider, ensuring that the front of the sliders are facing toward you. Make a simple loop to connect the two sliders, and bend the eye pin so that it is in a U shape.

Step 8 Repeat Step 7 seven more times to create a chain.

Step 9 Repeat Step 6 in the second set of holes on the final slider.

Step 10 Repeat Step 6 on the final slider to create a charm to attach to the end of the necklace.

Step 11 Create the following dangles:

a. Create 14 triple dangles: one pink luster link, one bright pink link, one ruby drop.

b. Create one center dangle by attaching the loop of one small link of the triple dangle you just made to the U-shaped eye pin with two pink luster rounds on it.

Step 12 Construct the necklace by attaching triple dangles to the first seven loops, then attach the center dangle to the two center loops using two 5mm jump rings. Attach triple dangles to the last seven loops.

Step 13 On one end of the rhinestone chain add one rhinestone cup finding by placing the final rhinestone into the cup and folding the tiny prongs over the rhinestone. Repeat on the opposite end of the chain.

Step 14 Open the wrapped eye pin loop at one end of the necklace and slide the lobster clasp onto it. Close the loop.

Step 15 Open the wrapped eye pin loop at the other end of the necklace and slide onto it the loop of the rhinestone cup finding. Close the loop.

Step 16 Open the 6mm jump ring and slide onto it the slider charm, the rhinestone cup at the opposite end of the chain and one bright pink drop. Close the loop.
