Emerald Isle

Instructions.


1) Open one of the Jump Rings and use this to attach the Pendant to the center link on the 16" length of chain. Open two more Jump Rings and use these to attach the each end of the chain to each half of the Filigree Clasp. Make sure that all of the Jump Rings are closed securely.

2) Take the 15" length of wire and thread on a Crimp Tube. Take the wire through the same connector loop on the Filigree Clasp that you did for the jump ring in the previous step. Pull the wire so that the Crimp Tube cinches up to the connector loop, and then crimp the tube shut with your Crimping Pliers. Cut off the excess wire with your Side Cutters.

3) Begin the beading process of threading on an Emerald Round Bead followed by a Gold Plated Round Bead until all of the beads are threaded onto the wire.

To Finish.

4) Thread on the last Crimp Tube and then thread the wire through the connector loop on the other side of the Filigree Clasp. Pull so that all slack is removed from the strand, and then take the wire around and back through the Crimp Tube. Pull tight, and then crimp the tube closed with your Crimping Pliers. Cut off the excess wire with your Side Cutters.
