Project Instructions

Make bead drops from your beads using the desired head pins, making loops at top with wire wrapping technique.

For the large crystal centerpiece, use the wire wrapping technique to create a loop at both top and bottom of the bead.

Cut the loop from the top of the crown, and file to remove any rough edges. Slide necklace through top of crown, brass and pearl stacker; attach to top of crystal bead with large silver jump ring.

Use varying lengths to attach Blingin’ Key, brass flower, teacup tassel, and gemstone drops to the bottom of crystal focal piece. (Use both antique brass and silver jump rings for a more coordinated look!)

Attach one gemstone and both sides of butterfly to the end of the necklace opposite the lobster claw.
