Strand One

Pick up the first strand of tigertail. Thread on a small crimp, a jump ring, then thread back through the crimp. Pull up tightly, squish securely and cut off any excess tigertail. Place a crimp cover around the squashed crimp and gently squish into a round ball with your pliers to hide the crimp.

Then thread on the pattern A (at the top of the page) 3 times, so that you have three 18mm oval cloisonne beads on your strand. Follow by threading on:

  • a 6mm rondelle glass crystal bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead
  • a 7mm helix glass crystal bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead
  • a 6mm rondelle glass crystal bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead
  • an 18mm oval cloisonne bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead
  • a 6mm rondelle glass crystal bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead
  • a 7mm helix glass crystal bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead
  • a 6mm rondelle glass crystal bead

Thread through a small crimp, through a strong jump ring, then back through the small crimp. Pull up tightly (but leave enough space to put another crimp cover over the crimp) and squish down the small crimp. Cut off any excess tigertail. Place a crimp cover around the squashed crimp and gently squish into a round ball with your pliers to hide the crimp. Put aside for now.

Strand Two

Pick up the second strand of tigertail. Thread on a small crimp, a jump ring, then thread back through the crimp. Pull up tightly, squish securely and cut off any excess tigertail. Place a crimp cover around the squashed crimp and gently squish into a round ball with your pliers to hide the crimp.

Then thread on the pattern B (at the top of the page) 3 times, so that you have three 18mm oval cloisonne beads on your strand. Follow by threading on:

  • a 6mm rondelle glass crystal bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead
  • a 7mm helix glass crystal bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead
  • a 6mm rondelle glass crystal bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead

  • a 6mm rondelle glass crystal bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead
  • a 7mm helix glass crystal bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead
  • a 6mm rondelle glass crystal bead

Thread through a small crimp, through a strong jump ring, then back through the small crimp. Pull up tightly (but leave enough space to put another crimp cover over the crimp) and squish down the small crimp. Cut off any excess tigertail. Place a crimp cover around the squashed crimp and gently squish into a round ball with your pliers to hide the crimp. Put aside for now.

Putting it all together

Pick up the flower diamante 2 strand box clasp and separate the two pieces. Open up the jump ring (as they are quite strong, you will need two pairs of pliers or a jump ring tool) on the end of strand one and attach the top of one part of the clasp. Close securely. Open up the jump ring on the end of strand two and attach to the bottom of the part of the clasp, close securely. Repeat with the other side of the necklace. Your necklace is now ready to wear!
