Step 1
String the following components onto one 2-inch sterling silver ballpin:
  • One 6mm round Swarovski neon orange pearl
  • One 4mm bicone Swarovski jet bead
Using round-nose pliers, chain-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire creating a beading drop.
Step 2
Repeat to create a second beading drop using:
  • One 2-inch sterling silver ballpin
  • One 6mm round Swarovski neon yellow pearl
  • One 4mm bicone Swarovski jet bead
Step 3

Using flush-cutters, cut one 3-1/4 inch length of 6mm sterling silver rolo chain.
Step 5
Using laser scissors, cut the following:
  • One 60-inch length of 2mm round tan woven cotton cord
  • One 36-inch length of Size F grey Purely Silk™ thread
Step 6
String one 6.5mm sterling silver round jumpring onto the woven cotton cord and fold cord in half with jumpring at the fold.
Step 7
Thread embroidery needle with 32 inches of Purely Silk thread. Pull thread halfway through needle leaving a 16-inch double strand of thread.

Stitch the woven cord around the jumpring making several wraps and stitches in a figure eight pattern to secure the jumpring in place, bringing the wraps down approximately 1/4 inch on both sides of the woven cord.
Step 8
Pass the needle through one 4mm round Swarovski jet bead and over and under the cord on the opposite side.


Pass the needle back through the bead again in the opposite direction then back under and over the opposite cord at an angle to be in position to add a second 4mm round Swarovski jet bead.
Continue this process of adding beads and lashing the cord with the thread using the following pattern:
