Single-Strand Necklace with Celestial Crystal® Beads and Czech Glass Beads

STEP 1
Onto one eyepin, place one 4mm turquoise bicone crystal, one 19mm turquoise beaded bead and one 4mm turquoise bicone crystal. Using a pair of round-nose pliers, chain-nose pliers and flush-cutters, finish the end with a simple loop to create a 19mm turquoise beaded beading link.

Repeat to create the following beading links, using a 1-1/2 inch eyepin for each:
  • Two 6mm turquoise crystal triple-bead beading links, using one 4mm opaque white glass bead, one 6mm turquoise round crystal and one 4mm opaque white glass bead
  • Two 6mm turquoise druk beading links, using one 6mm turquoise druk glass bead
  • Four 8mm turquoise druk beading links, using one 8mm turquoise druk glass bead
  • Four 11x8mm turquoise oval crystal beading links, using one 11x8mm turquoise oval crystal
  • Eight 15x10mm turquoise oval crystal beading links, using one 15x10mm turquoise oval crystal
  • Six 8mm opaque white druk beading links, using one 8mm opaque white druk glass bead
STEP 2
Using one pair of chain-nose pliers and one pair of flat-nose pliers, open a 4mm jumpring. Pass the jumpring through a loop on the 19mm turquoise beaded beading link and a loop on two 6mm turquoise crystal triple-bead beading links. Close the jumpring.
STEP 3
Open a 4mm jumpring. Pass the jumpring through the opposite loop on one of the 6mm turquoise crystal triple-bead beading links and a loop on the back of the enamel flower focal piece. Close the jumpring. Repeat to attach the second 6mm turquoise crystal triple-bead beading link to the other loop on the back of the focal piece.
STEP 4
Starting from the clasp, connect one of each of the following components together using one 4mm jumpring between each component:
  • 6mm turquoise druk beading link
  • 11x8mm turquoise oval crystal beading link
  • 8mm opaque white druk beading link
  • 15x10mm turquoise oval crystal beading link
  • 8mm turquoise druk beading link
  • 15x10mm turquoise oval crystal beading link
  • 8mm opaque white druk beading link
  • 15x10mm turquoise oval crystal beading link
  • 8mm turquoise druk beading link
  • 15x10mm turquoise oval crystal beading link
  • 8mm opaque white druk beading link
  • 11x8mm turquoise oval crystal beading link
STEP 5
Open a 4mm jumpring. Pass the jumpring through the loop on the last 11x8mm turquoise oval crystal beading link, the loop on the top of the 19mm turquoise beaded drop and a loop on an 11x8mm turquoise oval crystal beading link.
STEP 6
Starting with the 11x8mm turquoise oval crystal beading link added in Step 5, repeat Step 4 backwards to create the second half of the strand in a mirror image of the first half of the strand. Connect the strand to the second half of the clasp using a jumpring.
