DIRECTIONS:

NECKLACE:

  1. Make beaded link segments 1st. Thread black bicones onto eyepin as follows: a 4mm, a 6mm & a 4mm. Finish with a simple top loop. After the last top bead, leave 1/4" of wire & trim the excess. Use pliers to bend wire to form a right angle. Going against the angle, use round-nose pliers to grasp end of the wire & curve using a rolling motion to fold it over a single prong (twist wrist as if using a screwdriver). Make 9 black links.
  2. Thread a 4mm black bicone, an 8mm black diamond bicone & a 4mm black bicone onto an eyepin & finish with a simple top loop. Make 2 links.
  3. Thread a 3mm silver round, a 4mm black bicone & a 3mm silver round onto an eyepin & finish with a simple loop. Make 2 links.
  4. Thread a 4mm black bicone, a 6mm black diamond bicone & a 4mm bicone onto an eyepin & finish with a simple loop. Make 1 link.
  5. Cut 4 each: 6-link, 3-link, 5-link & 9-link chains, following the order used from clasp to the Y.
  6. Create short chains by linking together 6mm jump rings: begin with single jump ring; attach 2 to this one & continue down through a single jump ring. Open & close jump rings with side-twist motion so circle retains shape. Create four 5-jump-ring chains with doubles on every other jump ring going down. Create two 7-jumpring chains. Refer to photo.
  7. Lay out bead links, chains & jump-ring chains. Use additional jump rings to connect clasp ends & segments.
  8. Create dangles: Make 4: thread 3mm silver round & black diamond 4mm bicone onto a headpin; finish with simple top loop.
  9. Make 3: thread 8mm black bicone onto a headpin; finish with a top loop.
  10. Make 1: thread 6mm black bicone & 4mm black bicone onto headpin; finish with a top loop.
  11. Make 1: thread two 6mm black bicones onto headpin; finish with a top loop.
  12. Make 1: thread 8mm black diamond bicone & 4mm black bicone onto head pin; finish with top loop.
  13. Attach dangles down center length of Y. Add clasp.

EARRINGS:

  1. Refer to the photo. Open & close top loop of a 4mm drop; attach to inside circle of each chandelier finding.
  2. Cut four 5-link chains, four 7-link chains and two 10-link chains.
  3. Use 6mm jump ring at each bottom loop on the chandelier to attach the graduated lengths of chains & drops.
  4. Open & close top loops of the drops & attach to the bottom of the chains.
  5. Connect chandelier findings to ear wires by carefully spreading the bottom hook on the ear wire.
