Step One – Create Picasso Jasper Pendant

FAEVN11. Add one 20mm Picasso Jasper Puff Coin, one 3x2mm Silver-Plated Rondelle, and one 8mm Gold Crystal Round to a Silver-Plated headpin.  Make a 90° bend in headpin just above beads.  Using round nose pliers (or any pliers you have) hold the headpin near the angle and bend it around the pliers to make a loop.  Wrap down around headpin creating as many coils as you can.  Trim any extra.



Step Two – Create Necklace

1. Start the necklace by taking a crimp bead and string it onto one end of the Buddy Braids about a ½” from the end. 

2. Take the clasp and string it onto the same end of the Buddy Braids the crimp bead is on.

3. Take your Buddy Braids and string it back through the crimp bead.  See Illustration 1.

4. Take a pair of Crimping Pliers and squeeze the crimp bead until you cannot pull the Buddy Braids back through.  Do not trim the excess; simply string the beads on both ends of the Buddy Braids.

5. Add a Silver-Plated Crimp Bead Cover by placing it over the crimp bead and squeezing it closed.  See Illustration 2.
