Get inspired by Swarovski design team's limitless imagination. Magical project ideas bring a new dimension to simple techniques.
Draw the pattern shown in the illustration in Step 1 onto a sheet of paper or print out the illustration to get the pattern.
Cut 100cm of the 0.8mm wire and bend the wire into the shape of pattern starting at the neck.
Twist the wire around the body as you see in the first picture in this step, and then continue bending the shape to the starting point. At starting point wind the wire around the neck and cut the access off with side cutters.
Make sure that the "head" is big enough, so that the 5328 10mm bead fits in.
Cut 170cm from the 0.6mm wire and wrap it around bended shape as you see in illustration. Slide on the first Swarovski bead 5328 in jet and wrap the wire around thicker wire on opposite side. Working from the back, slide on 2 Swarovski beads 5328 in white alabaster. Repeat this step for whole body as you see in illustration.
Take the upper wire end and fill the left arm with Swarovski beads as you see in illustration. Use the same technique as in Step 5. When you have finished cut off wire ends with side-cutters.
Cut 30cm from the 0.6mm wire and wrap it around the end of the body. Fill the legs with both wire ends, using the same method as in Step 5. Cut off wire ends as you see in illustration.
Cut 60cm from the 0.6mm wire and bend two loops with round-nose pliers. Open the jumpring sideways with flat-nose pliers and hang it into the two loops. Then close it again with flat-nose pliers.
Take the Swarovski beads 5328, 10mm in sapphire and pass the two ends of the looped wire through as you see in illustration. Fix the bead in the head by wrapping both wire ends around the neck and fill the right arm in the same way as in Step 6. Cut off both wire ends at the end.
Take the piece of leather and cut out the shape that is in the illustration.
Place the leather in the smaller key ring and fold back the end and glue it to the inside (see illustration).
Glue 9 Swarovski sew-on stones 3255 onto the leather piece as you see in illustration.
Cut a piece of 0.25mm nylon thread and melt the end of a nylon thread to a small ball with the lighter. Slide a Swarovski bead 5328 on and go through first hole of first sew-on stone (see illustration). Sew through to the back side through 2nd hole of sew-on stone and slide on the next bead. Cut off the thread after a few cm and melt the end to a ball directly after the bead. Repeat this step 8 times.
Slide the big key ring onto open end of leather piece and glue the leather onto the inside of back side as shown in the illustration.
Open the jumpring and close it over the small key ring.
