Project Instructions

Step 1 Cut a 4" piece of 18-gauge wire. Make a wire wrapped loop on one end. Cut the remaining wire to 1-1/8". Fold the very end of the wire over, so it is doubled. Form a hook from the remaining length of wire. Set aside to use later.

Step 2 Cut a 4" piece of 18-gauge wire. Make a wire-wrapped loop on one end. Slide a 6x8mm topaz faceted rondelle onto the wire. Form a second wire-wrapped loop next to the bead. Set aside.

Step 3 Cut a 20" piece of .018 flexible beading wire. String the smoky teardrop pendant and slide it to the center of the wire.

Step 4 On each side of the pendant, string the following pattern: one 4mm round topaz bead, one crystal-studded round slider, one 4mm round topaz bead, one sunflower slider, one 6.8 amber rondelle, one crystal-studded round slider, one 18mm dark amber faceted octagon, one beaded spacer, one topaz snowflake lentil, one beaded spacer, one medium amber faceted octagon, one beaded spacer, one topaz snowflake lentil, one light amber faceted octagon, one beaded spacer, one topaz snowflake lentil, one beaded spacer, one 6x8mm amber rondelle, one beaded spacer, one topaz snowflake lentil, one beaded spacer, one 6x8mm amber rondelle, one beaded spacer, one topaz snowflake lentil, one beaded spacer, one 6x8mm amber rondelle, one beaded spacer, one 6x8mm amber rondelle, one beaded spacer, one 6x8mm amber rondelle, one beaded spacer, one 4mm round amber/topaz bead, a crimp tube, and the wire wrapped loop of one half of the clasp.
