Follow the instructions below to make this elegant Crystal Pearl Necklace with Estella Pearls. This necklace uses every available size in the Estella Pearls range, combined to create a delicately sloping gradient effect, elevating the design above the average pearl necklace. The colour of the Estella pearls and components used for this hand-crafted accessory are customisable to suit the taste of the wearer and would make a beautiful birthday or Mother’s Day gift. This would also be a perfect accessory for anyone attending a wedding or Royal Ascot!

Thread the Acculon thread through the hole of the crimp bead, then through one of the jump rings and back into the crimp bead as shown:
Keeping a firm grip of the thread to ensure that both parts of the thread stay within the crimp bead, using crimping pliers (or any jewellery making or household pliers will do) crush the crimp bead first one way, then the other, to grip the Acculon thread in place permanently.
The Acculon thread should now stay in place when the thread is pulled. Once the thread is secure within the crushed crimp bead, cut off the excess thread leaving about 1 cm which can then be threaded back through the threaded beads.
Thread 20 of the 3mm Estella Pearls onto the Acculon thread, after that thread on 20 of the 4mm pearls, then 20 of the 6mm and finally 20 of the 8mm pearls. This should take you beyond the halfway point of the necklace and you can now start adding 20 pearls of each size decreasing each time until you reach the other end of the necklace.
To secure the second end of the bracelet, you will need to repeat Step 1, ensuring that you tighten the Acculon thread so that there is no excess. Once the thread is secure within the crushed crimp bead, cut off the excess thread leaving about 1 cm which can then be threaded back through the threaded beads.
Open the jump ring by using two pliers and twisting the jump ring in opposite directions, this will safely open the jump ring.
Thread the open jump ring through the loop on one end of the bracelet. Close the jump ring using the two pliers to pull the ends of the jump ring together.
Repeat this process on the other end of the bracelet. While the jump ring is still open loop on the trigger clasp as well and then close it using the pliers.
