Instructions:

  1. Use the Peridot wire (do not cut any wire from the spool) to string all the pearls. Use the wire and the Knitting Spool to knit a 4" length of knitted wire using Style 3 in the instructions for How to Use the Knitting Spool, making sure to leave a 3" tail of wire at the beginning of the wire and adding 1 pearl to each knitted stitch. Cut the wire from the spool, leaving a 3" tail. Set aside.
     
  2. Use 2" of 20-gauge wire to form a wire wrapped loop. Use one end of the beading wire to string 1 crimp tube and the wrapped loop just formed. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Use the 20-gauge wire to string 1 cone (wide end first). Snug the cone onto the knitted wire and form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to 1 soldered jump ring. Repeat entire step for the other end of the knitted wire piece.
     
  3. Use 4" of 20-gauge wire to form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to the previous jump ring. String 1 heishi spacer, 1 Lucite bead, and 1 heishi spacer; form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to 1 soldered jump ring.
