Project Instructions

Step 1 Pass a head pin through three crystal polka-dot sliders. Make a simple loop. Repeat, passing a second head pin through the second set of holes in the same direction so that both simple loops are on the same side of the crystal polka-dot sliders. This is the pendant of the necklace.

Step 2 Pass a head pin through two crystal polka-dot sliders. Bend the tail of the wire back toward the head of the wire and pinch it to hold the sliders together. Repeat, passing a second head pin through the second set of holes in the opposite direction. This creates part of the clasp.

Step 3 Slide one 8mm half silver bicone onto a head pin. Make a simple loop. Repeat 23 more times for a total of 24 single drops.

Step 4 Slide one 8mm faceted silver iris round and one 4x6mm faceted jet lentil onto a head pin. Make a simple loop. Repeat 23 more times for a total of 24 double drops.

Step 5 Slide one 10mm faceted silver round, one 6x8mm faceted grey rondelle, and one 4x6mm faceted jet rondelle onto a head pin. Make a simple loop. Repeat eleven more times for a total of twelve triple drops.

Step 6 Pick up and pass the beading wire through two crimp tubes.

Step 7 String 22 3mm faceted silver rounds, and pass the beading wire back through the crimp tubes.

Step 8 Crimp the tube and trim excess beading wire.

Step 9 String one 4mm faceted jet round.

Step 10 String one 6mm faceted smoky Czech glass round, one single drop, one 4mm faceted silver iris bicone, one double drop, one 4mm faceted silver iris bicone, one triple drop, 4mm faceted silver iris bicone, one double drop, 4mm faceted silver iris bicone, one single drop, and one 6mm faceted smoky Czech glass round.

Step 11 String one graduated grey slider, passing the wire through the hole toward the dark end of the crystals.

Step 12 Repeat Step 10.

Step 13 String one crystal zigzag slider.

Step 14 Repeat Step 10.

Step 15 String one graduated grey slider, passing the wire through the hole toward the dark end of the crystals.

Step 16 Repeat Step 10.

Step 17 String one crystal zigzag slider.

Step 18 Repeat Step 10.

Step 19 String one graduated grey slider, passing the wire through the hole toward the dark end of the crystals.

Step 20 Repeat Step 10.

Step 21 String one loop of the crystal polka-dot pendant, four 4mm faceted silver iris bicones, and then the second loop of the crystal polka-dot pendant.

Step 22 Repeat Step 10.

Step 23 String one crystal zigzag slider.

Step 24 Repeat Step 10.

Step 25 String one graduated grey slider, passing the wire through the hole toward the dark end of the crystals.

Step 26 Repeat Step 10.

Step 27 String one crystal zigzag slider.

Step 28 Repeat Step 10.

Step 29 String one graduated grey slider, passing the wire through the hole toward the dark end of the crystals.

Step 30 Repeat Step 10.

Step 31 String one 4mm faceted jet round and two crimp tubes.

Step 32 Pass the wire through the corner hole of the two-crystal polka-dot slider portion of the clasp and back through the crimp tubes, remove excess slack from the wire but leave some remaining to ensure that the necklace hangs well. Crimp the tubes and cut the tail end of the wire.
