Get inspired by Swarovski® design team's limitless imagination. Magical project ideas bring a new dimension to simple techniques.

Step 1

Slide one Bead article 5328 6mm in White Opal onto a headpin and form a loop with round-nose pliers as you see in illustration.
Step 2

Insert the 1.2mm stick into the loop and bend the wire once more around the stick. Cut off wire end with side-cutter after second full loop and remove stick.
Step 3

Slide one Bead article 5000 6mm in Violet Opal onto a headpin and form a loop with about 3mm distance to the bead.
Step 4

Insert the 1.7mm stick into the loop and bend the wire once more around the stick. Remove stick and hold the two rounds with the round-nose pliers and twist wire two times back.
Step 5

Cut 10cm of the 0.4mm wire and string the 5 Beads with loops onto it. Have a look onto picture in illustration. All wraps should go to the same side. Bend each wire end once through all beads and pull tight like you see in illustration. Pass both wire ends through all loops and cut off rest.
Step 6

Pass the Bead article 5000 with wire loop through the middle of bead circle and place the Fancy Stone article 4139 over the wrapped loops of the 5000-pendant. Have a look onto illustration.
Step 7

Cut 10cm of the 0.7mm wire. Twist the wire around the ring mandrel. String one end of spiral through loop of Beads article 5000 like you see in illustration. Turn spiral until 2 loops of it are inside the loop. Rotate again 4 loops further but without inserting the spiral end into the loop. Have a look onto pictures in illustration. Insert the mandrel again.
Step 8

Open the loops until there remain 3 loops on either side of the two loops which pass the inside the loop of Beads article 5000. Have a look onto illustration. Wrap with both wire ends x4 around like you see in illustration and remove mandrel again.
Step 9

Cut one wire end short and hide it with flat-nose pliers inside the Fancy Stone article 4139.
Step 10

Insert the mandrel and wrap remaining wire end 2 times around like you see in illustration. Cut off wire and hide wire end with tweezers.
