Single-Strand Necklace with Copper Beads, Celestial Crystal® Beads and Copper-Plated Chain

STEP 1
String onto a headpin, one 6mm round blue Celestial Crystal, one copper bead cap and one 4x1mm copper beaded rondelle. Using round-nose pliers, chain-nose pliers and side-cutting pliers, finish the end with a simple loop. Repeat to create six 6mm blue crystal with bead cap bead drops.

Repeat to create the following:
  • Two fancy oval copper bead drops, using one headpin, one 4x1mm copper beaded rondelle, one fancy oval copper bead and one 4x1mm copper beaded rondelle
  • Two flat marquise copper bead drops, using one headpin, one 4x1mm copper beaded rondelle, one flat marquise copper bead and one 4x1mm copper beaded rondelle
  • Two simple blue crystal bead drops, using one headpin, one 4x1mm copper beaded rondelle and one 6mm round blue crystal
STEP 2
Using side-cutting pliers, cut off the head of one 2-inch headpin. Create a simple loop on one end to create an eyepin. String onto the eyepin, three 4x1mm copper beaded rondelles. Finish the end with a simple loop to create one copper rondelle bead link.
STEP 3
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open an 8mm jumpring. Pass the open ring through the loop on a simple blue crystal bead drop, one loop on the copper rondelle beading link, the cooper leaf, and the 44th link of the cable chain. Close the jumpring.

Tip: The coating on the leaves sometimes overflows into the hole. The leaves are soft and the coating is easily cleaned out of the hole with an awl.
STEP 4
Open the loop on a simple blue crystal bead drop. Pass it through the second loop on the copper rondelle bead link attached to the leaf. Close the loop.
STEP 5
