Necklace

1. Slide 10mm jump ring through 28mm Sea Snail pendant and close

2. Cut 24” leather cord into two 12” pieces. Fold both pieces in half and insert loops through pendant hole as shown. Pull leather cord tails through loops and pull taut.

3. Place Radiolarian pendant onto each leather cord strand as desired and mark location with a small knot. Slide Radiolarian pendant past knot indicator and create an overhand knot to secure. Repeat for other three pendants. You may trim leather cord tails or leave hanging. If leather cord is from a small spool, it will curl on itself but with time the leather will relax.

4. Crimp on one end of toggle clasp onto beading wire and attach crimp bead cover. String 4mm bicone beads onto wire until desired length is achieved. Slip beaded wire through jump ring from Step 1. Crimp other end of toggle clasp and attach crimp cover.

Earrings

1. Slide one 14mm Sea Snail Pendant onto 8mm jump ring and close. Use 4mm jump ring to attach pendant to ear wire. Repeat to make second earring.
