Step 1: Tread Toggle Onto Silk

Before starting the necklace be sure to stretch your silk! Begin by stretching your silk holding 6" sections between your hands and pulling taught for 10 seconds. Continue in this way down the length until the silk is stretched and straight. 

Use the built-in needle to thread the silk through one crimp and then through the ring on the toggle bar. Thread the silk back through the crimp and pull until only a tiny bit of silk shows. Use your chain nose pliers to flatten crimp.

Step 2: Thread and Crimp Bead to Silk

Use the needle to thread the silk through one crimp and then through one bead. Thread the silk back through the crimp and pull until the bead hangs on a small loop of silk and is positioned about 1 inch from the toggle bar. Use your chain nose pliers to flatten crimp. Repeat this, assorting the beads and spacing them all approximately 1 inch along the silk until a 15 inch length of silk is beaded.

Step 3: Thread and Crimp Other Toggle Half

Use the needle to thread the silk through one crimp and then through the ring on the toggle loop. Thread the silk back through the crimp and pull until only a tiny bit of silk shows. Use your chain nose pliers to flatten crimp.
