Project Instructions

Cut the beading wire into two 10" pieces.

Holding the two wires as one, string one crimp tube. Pass the wire through the loop of the toggle ring and back through the crimp tube. Crimp the tube and trim excess wires. String one 8mm blue Taiwan Howlite faceted round.

Separate the two beading wires. Onto one, string one 3mm blue dyed Howlite round, the loops of a purple and green flower slider, one 3mm blue dyed Howlite round, the loops of an oval pink and orange slider, one 3mm blue dyed Howlite round, the loops of the rectangle turquoise slider, one 3mm blue dyed Howlite round, the loops of an oval pink and orange slider, one 3mm blue dyed Howlite round, the loops of a purple and green flower slider, and one 3mm blue dyed Howlite round. Place a bead stopper on the strand.

Repeat step with second beading wire, passing through the other set of loops on the sliders.

Holding both wires as one, string one 8mm blue Taiwan Howlite faceted round and one 3mm amethyst glass faceted round.

String one 10mm glass amethyst round and one 3mm amethyst glass faceted round. Repeat five more times.

String one crimp tube. Pass the wires through the loop of the toggle bar and back through the crimp tube. Crimp the tube and trim excess wires.

Onto a ball pin, slide one 3mm blue dyed Howlite round, one 14mm ruby rhinestone ball and one blue dyed Howlite round. Make a wrapped loop.

Onto a ball pin slide one pink coral tube. Make a wrapped loop.

Slide the blue dyed Howlite teardrop onto the eye pin. Slide it down so that it is about ½" from the loop. Bend the wire on the eye side so that it conforms to the shape of the teardrop. Bend the tail of the wire up toward the "neck" of the eye pin and wrap the tail around the neck.

Open the jump ring and slide all three drops onto it. Attach these drops to the toggle ring loop.
