STEP 1
String one 10mm round cobalt blue crystal and one bead cap onto a 1-1/2 inch headpin. Form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire. Repeat to create five 10mm round cobalt blue crystal drops. Repeat to create the following bead drops, using one bead and one 1-inch headpin for each:
  • Sixteen 4mm cobalt blue crystal drops
  • Eight 4mm medium blue crystal drops
  • Twelve 6mm medium blue crystal drops
STEP 2
String one 9x6mm cobalt blue crystal onto an eyepin. Form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire, creating a 9x6mm cobalt blue crystal link. Repeat to create two 9x6mm cobalt blue crystal links.

Repeat to create the following beading links using one bead and one eyepin for each:
  • Seven 9x6mm medium blue crystal links
  • Nine 11x8mm medium blue crystal links
  • Eight 15x10mm cobalt blue crystal links
STEP 3
Open the loop on a 9x6mm cobalt blue crystal link. Pass the open loop through the loop on a 4mm medium blue crystal drop. Close the loop. Repeat to create two 9x6mm cobalt blue crystal drop assemblies.

Open the loop on a 9x6mm medium blue crystal link. Pass the open loop through the loop on a 4mm cobalt blue crystal drop. Close the loop. Repeat to create two 9x6mm medium blue crystal drop assemblies.

Open the loop on an 11x8mm medium blue crystal link. Pass the open loop through the loop on a 4mm cobalt blue crystal drop. Close the loop. Repeat to create four 11x8mm medium blue crystal drop assemblies.

Open the loop on an 11x8mm medium blue crystal link. Pass the open loop through the loop on a 9x6mm medium blue crystal link. Close the loop. Attach 10mm cobalt blue crystal drop to the opposite loop on the 9x6mm medium blue crystal link. Repeat to create five triple crystal drop assemblies.

Open the loop on a 15x10mm cobalt blue crystal link. Pass the open loop through the loop on a 6mm medium blue crystal drop. Close the loop. Repeat to create eight 15x10mm cobalt blue crystal drop assemblies.
STEP 4
Using side-cutting pliers, cut a 19-inch length of 4.8x3.3mm silver plated cable chain.
