Project Instructions

Step: 1

Determine the length of necklace desired and cut beading wire to that length plus 6-inches.


Step: 2

Slide pendant onto wire, moving it to the center.


Step: 3

Work from the pendant out; each side will need to match, so it is easier to do one side and then the other.


Step: 4

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.


Step: 5

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.


Step: 6

Add to ear wire and close opening.


Step: 7

The bracelet is created with 3 strands of beads.


Step: 8

Cut a10-inch length of wire, attach one at a time to toggle with crimp bead.


Step: 9

One strand can be all pearls, one crystals and another a mix of crystals and pearls.


Step: 10

Attach each strand to other end of toggle to finish.
