Project Instructions

Step 1 Cut a 12" piece of stringing wire (or string on spool). Thread one end onto a crimp bead then through one end of a chain piece and back through the crimp. Pull close to the end and collapse the crimp tightly with your chain nose pliers. Cut away excess wire.

Step 2 String on bicone beads in this order: two Crystal Bronze, three Pacific Opal, two Silvershade, four Indicolite, seven Montana and two Denim.

Step 3 Thread on another crimp bead then thread through the end of another chain piece and back through the crimp. Pull close to the end and collapse the crimp tightly with your chain nose pliers. Cut away excess wire.

Step 4 For the next strand, follow Steps 1 – 3, only this time add an extra Montana and denim crystal.

Step 5 For the remaining strands, keep adding one extra Montana and Denim crystal making sure to substitute two Light Siam bicones for the two Crystal Bronze bicones on only one of the strands. (We put our love crystals on the second to last strand!)

Step 6 Gather one end of your chains. Open a 6mm jump ring and add on the chains at the ends.

Step 7 Gather the other ends and add to the other 6mm jump ring.

Step 8 Add an 8mm jump ring to one end and the lobster claw to the other to finish.

Tips

Adding two extra beads to each strand will give necklace the various layer lengths. You can string your crystals directly onto the wire spool to save wire.
