Cut two pieces of flexible beading wire, 18" long, with wire cutters.
Thread onto the beading wire one strand of glass pearls, specialty finding roundels and rhinestone beads. Between each bead or specialty finding, loop a couple of short lengths of chain. Begin and end the length of flexible beading wire with a glass pearl.
Thread the end of the beaded wire through a crimp bead. Feed the wire back down through the crimp bead, forming a small loop at the end.
Crimp the bead with crimp pliers.
Repeat for the opposite end of the beaded wire length.
Place two jump rings on each end of the wire that is beaded with the pearls and chain.
Bead the second length of flexible beading wire using the second strand of glass pearls.
Place a Bead Landing™ roundel right before the last bead on each end of the beaded wire.
Feed the end of the wire through a crimp bead. Fold the wire over and feed it back down through the crimp bead, forming a small loop.
Repeat for the opposite end of the beaded wire.
Place one jump ring on each end of this beaded wire.
Attach a jump ring to each loop on the Bead Landing™ specialty findings connectors.
Open the jump rings on one end of each connector and attach one end of each beaded length to each connector.
On the opposite end of each connector’s jump ring, attach a length of chain so that the necklace falls at the desired point on your neck.
On the ends of the chain lengths, attach one part of the toggle with a jump ring.
