Project Instructions

Step 1 String a faceted round on a ball head pin and make a wrapped loop. Repeat for a total of 20 faceted round dangles.

Step 2 Connect four of the oval rhinestone connectors with the 6mm jump rings. On each jump ring, attach five faceted round dangles. Close the jump rings securely.

Step 3 From the center jump ring, attach a 4mm jump ring to the top of an oval rhinestone connector for a center focal point.

Step 4 Create a loop on the 20 ga. wire. Attach the loop to the bottom of the oval rhinestone connector. Close the loop and wrap the extra wire.

Step 5 String a disco bead onto the wire. Create a loop on the end. Attach the loop to the top of the remaining oval rhinestone connector. Close the loop and wrap the extra wire.

Step 6 Open the remaining 4mm jump ring. Add five faceted round dangles to the jump ring and attach to the bottom loop on the oval rhinestone connector.

Step 7 Cut the beading wire into two 20" pieces.

Step 8 String the wire to the loop on one of the oval connectors.

Step 9 String both wires through the disco bead and out the other side at two different holes. String a slider onto the wires.

Step 10 Repeat Step 9 three more times.

Step 11 String both wires through a disco bead and a faceted round. Crimp wires to the box clasp.

Step 12 Repeat Steps 8-11 on the other side of the necklace.
