Get inspired by Swarovski design team's limitless imagination. Magical project ideas bring a new dimension to simple techniques.
Cut 1.5m of 0.25mm nylon thread and slide on 6 beads from our Swarovski crystal assortment, article 5328, 2.5mm in crystal moonlight. Now go through the last bead with both the thread ends so that a circle is formed as shown in the illustrations of this step.
Slide on the next bead, and cross with both the thread ends in through the last bead and pull tight. Now slide 2 beads onto one of the thread ends, 3 onto the other one and cross in through 3rd bead as shown in the illustrations with this step and pull tight.
Connect the 2nd bead circle with the first one by sliding one thread end through one of the beads of the circle formed in the step before and again through the same bead of the 2nd circle as shown in the illustrations in this step.
Repeat Steps 2 - 3 eight times to get 10 inter-connected circles as being depicted in the illustrations of this step.
Now go through one bead each of the 10 circle with both of the thread ends and slide on the next three beads, cross over and pull tight as being depicted in the illustrations with this step.
Repeat Step 3 to connect this half circle with the 10th circle as shown in the illustrations with this step.
Now repeat Steps 2 -3 to get one more bead circle as shown in the illustrations with this step.
Repeat Steps 5 - 7 three more times to get a nice beaded curve as is being depicted in the illustrations for this step.
Repeat Steps 2 - 3 nine more times to get 10 more of the beaded circles. Slice both thread ends back through one bead each and insert three more beads, now cross over and pull tight as being depicted in the illustrations for this step. You will again have another half circle at this point of time.
Now repeat Steps 2 - 3 and 5 - 7 three more times to form a beaded curve as shown in our illustrations for this step.
Now insert into this open beaded oval 2 Swarovski crystal fancy stones, article 4137 33x24mm in crystal silver shade. Now connect the end and the beginning of the beaded oval first with the red thread end go through the other bead and back through the bead from where it originated as is being clearly shown in the magnifiers in our illustrations for this step. Now move the blue thread end as being shown in the magnifier in the illustration for this step. Cross over through the last two set of beads to secure this thread end. Repeat same process with the red thread end too. Tie a double knot both the thread ends and pass both the thread ends through some of the beads and cut of the leftover thread ends as shown in our illustrations for this step. At this point you would have connected the two Swarovski crystal fancy stones as shown in our last picture for this step.
Repeat Steps 1 - 11 to connect another fancy stone to the already existing ones as shown in the illustration with this step. Again repeat Steps 1 - 11 to connect two more small fancy stones at each end of the chain as depicted in the illustrations in this step.
Connect three 12mm jumprings to one end of the chain with the help of flat-nose pliers.
Connect one 12mm one 6mm and two 5mm jumprings to the one end of the chain with the help of flat-nose pliers as shown in the illustrations with this step.
Now insert a Swarovski bead article 5000 6mm crystal moonlight on to a headpin and twist the end to form a loop with the help of flat- and round-nose pliers. Now connect this with the end of the chain where we had three 12mm jumprings by opening one of them with the help of flat-nose pliers as shown in the illustrations with this step.
