Project Instructions

  • 1
    Thread on 8 mirrored crystals onto a 18 inch piece of beading wire, and thread through the ending link of the beaded Black chain. Thread the right wire back through the last bead, in the opposite direction to create a loop and catch the beaded link within that loop.
  • 2
    On your leftmost wire thread on a crystal bead, then a teardrop. Repeat two more times. Do the same on the rightmost wire. Thread a teardrop on the left wire, then thread the right wire back through the teardrop. You will have another round. Thread 4 crystals on the left wire, and 4 on the right. Thread another crystal on the left, and thread back through it with the right. You should have your last round. Add on a crimp through both threads, and crimp it about an inch from the last bead, leaving some wire exposed. Add on Black glass beads for another 5 inch.
  • 3
    Add another crimp, then thread through a jump ring and back through the crimp. Crimp and cut off the excess.
  • 4
    Repeat for the other side, adding a clasp on the very end jump ring.
