To make the long crystal pendant necklace you'll need a crystal and this is a faceted rectangle crystal that's 12 millimeters by 17 millimeters. 

It's kind of a smoke color. And then you'll need a pearl and we chose sort of a smoky blue pearl to go with our smoky crystal and the pearl is five millimeters. We've got gunmetal findings here. We've got a gunmetal daisy spacer. That's five millimeters. A gunmetal bead cap that's four millimeters by six millimeters. And we've got a gun metal clasp and our clasp is about 12 millimeters across the diameter of the toggle. We have chain and you Necklace designs can make the chain any length you want ours is about 30 inches. And then we've got two gunmetal jump rings to attach the clasp to the chain. We've got a head pin and we've got silver wire in 24 gauge. For tools we've got chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers, and wire cutters. To get started making the necklace we're gonna feed the daisy spacer onto the head pin and then we're going to feed on this beautiful faceted crystal and then the bead cap.

And this is going to be our pendant part of the necklace and To make this into the pendant what we want to do is make Necklace designs  a wrapped loop in the top of this head pin wire To do that. I've got my round nose pliers I'm gonna pinch the wire right above the last bead. I'm pushing those beads together at the daisy spacer the crystal and the bead cap nice and tight and I'm going to bend a 90 degree bend in the wire right above the last bead the bead cap and Then I'm gonna reposition my pliers to the top of that bend I'm gonna push the wire over in the other direction to Make a partial loop and I can't complete the loop because the bottom jaw The pliers is in the way. So I'm going to reposition the pliers into the bottom So I can pull that wire the rest of the way around Like that, and then I want to wrap that loop to secure it and to do that. I'm going to hold the Ring the Necklace designs  loop I just made across and I'm gonna pull this tail around two times and this wires a little bit hard and What you can do if that's the case you can use your chain nose pliers to give you a better grip on The wire so that you can pull this wire around a little bit Tighter I'm just making two reps there sometimes headpin wire is a Little thicker or stronger and sometimes it's not but that's how we want to do our to wrap loops there I'm going to reach in with my wire cutters and I'm gonna cut that little tail that we just made I'll hold on to it.

So it doesn't fly off And just reach in there you give it a good snip and That is our pendant part.

That's so pretty got a little tail sticking out there And I'm gonna press that down with my chain nose pliers and That looks great And now we want to attach this to our toggle. This is going to hang from the toggle The round part of the toggle clasp and we're going to attach it with another little piece of wire work that features our purl What we're going to do is we're going to cut a piece of wire.This is our 24 gauge wire Necklace designs I cut a piece about four or five inches long and I'm going to start by making a wrapped loop in the end of this wire to do that I'm going to use my round nose pliers just like we did before I'm gonna come about a third of the way down on that wire and I'm gonna make a 90 degree bend in the wire reposition to the top of that Bend and Push the wire over the top jaw reposition the pliers to the bottom jaw in that loop and then I can pull the wire all the way around like that and Before I pull this wrap around and secure that I want to connect it. It's acting as a connector so we need to connect our pendant that we just made I slide it in there, and I want to Necklace just Nestle past the crisscross and into the loop Now I can secure this By holding that loop across with the pliers and then pulling the tail around two times Like that and then reach in there and trim That wire be careful not to cut the project and there's our Connector on there another little piece of wire sticking out. I'm just gonna mash that down. I Don't want to cut too close to the project because I don't want to cut the project So then I sometimes find up with the little tail like that. That's fine.

You can just push it down and Now we want to feed the pearl onto the wire and That's part of our connector. And then we're going to connect this to the toggle with another wrapped loop So I'm going to take my round nose pliers again I'm going to make a 90-degree Bend and Then I'm going to make a loop here By positioning my pliers in the top of that Bend, but if I make the loop at the top part here It'll be very narrow of narrow part of the pliers would be a very small loop if I go here on the pliers I'll make a big loop.Necklace designs I want a medium-size loop because I want it to fit over this toggle So I'm gonna go there in the middle and push the wire over And then pull it around so I switched to the bottom just so I could pull it around and then before I do my two raps on that I want to remember to attach it to The round part of my toggle clasp. I'm just gonna Kind of I just slide it past the crisscross I made there it is Now that's attached and then to secure it. I do my two wraps again. It's the same technique one two, I like to use a long piece of wire because it's easier to pull it around and You can save your scraps, but this wire is not expensive.

So don't worry about it.

And Let me wear this necklace. The toggle is going to have this cute little pendant hanging from it But we need to attach the toggle to the chain really do that with a jump ring This is one of our jump rings and it has a little split right here So what I like to do to open a jump ring is hold the jump ring on one side of that split with one pair of pliers and Then with the other pair of pliers grab the other side of this jump ring on the other side of split Push one side down towards necklace  the table While you're holding the other side up towards the ceiling and that keeps the jump ring round. It's still around shape It just has a little opening in it like a door and then that gives us room to slide on our clasp And then we can slide on the end of our chain so where's the end there it is and Then to close this I'm actually going to use my chain nose pliers, which of these flat pliers are called chain nose And you can press it back together like this.

 You could also use the two pairs of pliers and Just do the reverse of how you opened it in order to close it So this is on one end of our chain now and then we have the taco part of our clasp We necklace want to put on the other end of the chain. So this is our last Jump ring. I'm going to open it again the way I use two pliers What you don't want to do is open it like sideways. You don't want to just pull it apart It won't be round. You'll never make it round again necklace This keeps it nice and round. So I'm pushing one side down towards the table and I have a little opening that I can slide that toggle in there and Then I have to find the other end of my chain. Here it is and slide that into the jump ring and then press that closed and Then to wear this necklace I'm going to take the toggle end and we'll slide it into the circle part of the clasp like that and Then when you wear it, you have this beautiful long crystal pendant on your necklace so pretty
