Technique

1. Take one 25cm length of tiger tail and thread the tail through one crimp bead the wire guardian and back through the crimp bead. Crimp the crimp bead with your crimping pliers. Take your flat-nose pliers and gently place the crimp cover on top of the crimp to hide. Work your flat-nose pliers around the crimp cover to close. Repeat this step with the other two length of tiger tail.

2. Thread the following combination on the three length of tiger tail
STRAND 1: 8 x neon pearls, 1 x rhinestone rondelle, 1 x rhinestone bead, 1 x rhinestone rondelle & 15 x neon pearls
STRAND 2: 10 x neon pearls, 1 x rhinestone rondelle, 1 x rhinestone bead, 1 x rhinestone rondelle & 13 x neon pearls
STRAND 3: 13 x neon pearls, 1 x rhinestone rondelle, 1 x rhinestone bead, 1 x rhinestone rondelle & 10 x neon pearls

3. Finish each piece of tiger tail by threading a crimp bead and work through one wire guardian and through the crimp bead again. Close the crimp bead and cover with a crimp cover.

4. Take one 6mm jump ring and thread the ends of the three beaded strands and the lobster clasp. Take one more 6mm jump ring and thread the other end of the three beaded strand the chain.
