Follow it with 3 more 8mm grey pearls, 16 -10mm pearls, and 3 -8mm pearls. Take the other end of the crimped loop from the bottom strand and slide it onto the wire. String on 1 more 8mm pearl, and 3 -6mm pearls. Repeat Step 1 to crimp end shut.
6. Top strand: Slide a crimp bead on the beading wire, followed by one side of the toggle clasp. Fold the wire back through to create a loop that is about 1/8" and so that the toggle moves freely. Trim excess wire.
7. Trim the wire at the other end so that it is 18" long.
8. Slide 21-4mm white pearls onto the beading wire and 1 -6mm white pearl. Slide one of the crimped loops from the middle strand onto the wire, 2 more 6mm pearls, 3 -8mm pearls, 14 -10 mm pearls, 3 -8mm pearls, and 2 -6mm pearls.
