Project Instructions

Step: 1

Cut two 10 inch pieces of beading wire (7 strand is fine for this project).


Step: 2

Use a crimp bead to attach each wire to one half of the toggle clasp.


Step: 3

To use a crimp, thread a crimp bead and the clasp onto one end of beading wire. Bring the wire back down through the crimp bead so there is about a 1-inch tail. Push the crimp tight to the clasp end. Using your needle nose pliers, press the crimp flat. *A special crimping tool can be used instead of crimping flat. This technique will fold the crimp and create a neater finish.* Test that the wire is secure before threading on beads. The beads you thread on will cover the tail so there is no need to trim.


Step: 4

Thread onto each wire separately a crystal bicone.


Step: 5

Then thread onto each wire bead set A: 4mm pearl, 2-6mm pearls, 4mm crystal bicone and 2-6mm pearls.


Step: 6

Thread a crystal and silver component through both wires. You’ll find loops on the back to one strand will go through the top while the second strand can go through the bottom 2 loops. Slide this into place.


Step: 7

Continue by threading the strands: set A, a crystal and silver component, set A and a final 4mm crystal bicone.


Step: 8

Use a crimp to secure each strand to the second half of the toggle clasp. Pull the tail of wire back down through a few beads to hide it and then trim any excess wire after the crimps are crushed.
