Determine the length of necklace desired and cut beading wire to that length plus 6-inches.
Slide pendant onto wire, moving it to the center.
Work from the pendant out; each side will need to match, so it is easier to do one side and then the other.
Make the design your own, adding crystals and pearls as desired. Use photo as a guide. At each end add one piece of the toggle with crimp beads. Click to see crimping technique.
Earrings are made by adding beads to a head pin. Use wire cutters to clip head pin to ¼-inch from last bead. Use round nose pliers to bend to 90 degree angle and then back around to create loop. Click to see technique for making loop.
Add to ear wire and close opening.
The bracelet is created with 3 strands of beads.
Cut a10-inch length of wire, attach one at a time to toggle with crimp bead.
One strand can be all pearls, one crystals and another a mix of crystals and pearls.
Attach each strand to other end of toggle to finish.
Use photo as a guide and follow manufacturer’s instructions for all products used.
Bead Buddies are a great helping hand to hold your beads at one end as you are building your strands.
