Directions:

Step 1. Slide one Crimp Bead onto the Beading Chain. Find the center point on the Chain, then, using Crimping Pliers, crush the Crimp Bead ¼ inch to the left of the center point.

Step 2. From the left end of the Chain, slide on one Clear AB Crystal, one Amethyst Bicone, one Clear AB Crystal and one Crimp Bead. Crush the Crimp so that the three Crystals are held firmly in place on the chain.

Step 3. Slide another Crimp Bead onto the Chain from the left end, crushing it approximately 1 inch from the previous Crimp. Then, slide on one Amethyst Bicone, one Light Amethyst Heart Bead, one Amethyst Bicone and one Crimp Bead. Crush the Crimp Bead.

Step 4. Slide on another Crimp Bead, crushing it approximately 1 inch from the previous Crimp. Then, repeat Steps 2-3.

Step 5. Using Flat Nose Pliers, twist open one Jump Ring and slide it through the Silver Plated Primitive Bail and through the Ruby Pendant. Twist closed. Slide the Bail onto the Chain from the right side.

Step 6. Repeat Steps 1-4 on the right side of the Chain.

Step 7. Cut the ends of the Chain to approximately 2 ¾ from the last Crimp Beads. (leave more Chain if you’d prefer a longer necklace)

Step 8. Place one end of the Chain into a Crimp End. You may want to add a drop of Zap a Gap to secure the connection. Using Flat Nose Pliers, crush the Crimp End onto the Chain. Repeat with the other side of the Chain.

Step 9. Twist open one Jump Ring and slide it through one of the Crimp Ends and through the oval part of the Filigree Clasp. Twist Jump Ring closed. Twist open another Jump Ring and slide it though the other Crimp End and through the other part of the Filigree Clasp. Twist Jump Ring closed. Enjoy!
