Pearl Multi-strand Jewelry Set - Necklace, Earrings and Bracelet

I've said this before, but there's just something about pearls that I love. They are timeless and classy. Today's projects are a multi-strand pearl necklace, earrings and bracelet. One of the things I wanted to do with this set was to use different sizes of pearls to create some interest in the strands.

 Let's start with the necklace. This is my favorite piece of the three.

toggle clasp

How to Make a Pearl Multi-strands Necklace
Instructions for Necklace:
1 - Cut three pieces of beading wire, 30" 25" and 22".  The finished lengths are 28", 23", and 20"
2 - Fold over a small section of wire and secure with a crimp tube.
3 - String on your pearls in the pattern desired. For the smallest strand I did all rice pearls. The middle strand I did a pattern of four rice pearls, one round pearl. The longest strand I did six rice pearls and then a round pearl, alternating the sizes of the round pearl.
4 - Add a crimp tube, fold over wire and insert back through the crimp tube and several beads. Crimp in place.
5 - Connect each strand with a jump ring and toggle on each end.
