INSTRUCTIONS
Main part of necklace
Thread a small crimp, followed by a jump ring, onto your tigertail. Thread the tigertail back through the crimp, pull up tightly and squish the crimp down. Cut off any excess tigertail. Thread on one of the filigree metal tubes. Next, thread on:
- a flat silver lined glass bead
- a 6mm bicone glass crystal

Repeat pattern another 23 times, until you have 24 flat silver lined glass beads on your strand. Thread one more flat silver lined glass bead on, and finish with a filigree metal tube. Thread a small crimp, followed by a jump ring, onto your tigertail. Thread the tigertail back through the crimp, pull up tightly and squish the crimp down. Cut off any excess tigertail.

On one end of the strand, open up the attached jump ring, thread on the circle part of the toggle clasp (thread through the loop at the top of the circle) and close the jump ring securely.

Open up another jump ring and attach to the jump ring on the other end of the strand. While it's still open, thread on the bar part of the toggle clasp. Close securely.

The drop
Take a head pin and thread on:
- a plain metal bead
- a flat silver lined glass bead
- a plain metal bead
Leaving a space of 10mm, cut the excess off the head pin. Twirl the end using your twirly wirlies.

Putting it together
Open up another jump ring, whilst it is open, thread on:
- the drop
- the circle part of the toggle clasp (thread through the actual circle).
Close securely. Your necklace is now complete and ready to wear.
