Step 1

Cut 2 m of 0.2mm nylon thread and slide on 4 Beads from our SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS assortment, article 5000, 2mm 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.
Step 2

Slide on 4 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Beads, article 5000, 2mm in Crystal Moonlight again as you see in the illustrations in this step.
Step 3

Slide on 3 more Beads as you see in the illustration for this step.
Step 4

Now repeat step 2 once, step 3 thrice, again step 2 once more and finally step 3 thrice to get something similar as you see in the illustration for this step. For your convenience we have moved in for twice the ratio of the original size for the clear understanding of the processes involved from herein.
Step 5

Make a flower kind of structure inserting four more Beads and then crossing over as you can see in the illustration for this step.
Step 6

Repeat step 3 thrice, 2 once, 3 yet again thrice, 2 once more and this time step 3 once and step 2 once, to complete the drop like structure. Finally cross over through one Bead as being depicted in the illustrations for this step.
Step 7

Now go with both threads as shown in the illustrations with this step to arrive at the positions that is depicted in the illustration at this point.
Step 8

Repeat steps 5-7 three more times to get a nice beaded curve as is being depicted in the illustrations for this step.
Step 9

Start beading the second row of Beads as being depicted in the illustrations for this step.
Step 10

Keep beading along the Beads from the first row to keep both the rows attached with each other. In the illustrations of this step we can clearly see that one of the Beads from the second circle of Beads from the first row has been taken along while adding in other Beads for the second row. Carefully follow the steps from here.
Step 11

Now repeat step 10 once, step 9 once, step 10 twice, step 9 once, step 10 four times, step 9 once, step 10 four more times, step 9 once more, step 10 four more times, step 9 thrice, step 10 four more times, step 9 once more step 10 four more times, step 9 once more, step 10 again four more times, step 9 yet again once more and finally step 10 twice and step 9 once more. Please also refer to the illustrations for this step for the correct number of steps and their counts.
Step 12

Carefully slide both the thread ends through Beads as shown in the illustrations for this step.
Step 13

As being shown in the illustrations for this step slide on four more Beads onto both the threads and cross over through the fifth Bead and then again insert. Repeat this step and slide on 9 Beads on the left thread and 10 on the right one. Now fix the Bead with the row behind by sliding in twice through one of the Beads from the row at the background and then again back through the Bead of orifigination as is clearly depicted in our illustrations for this step. Repeat this for the other side as well.
Step 14

Slide both threads through the Beads until you reach the top part of the structure. As shown in the illustrations for this step cross over the blue thread through the top two Beads and similarly the red one too. Now slide onto each thread one Bead and cross over through the third one. Repeat this three more times and finally insert one Bead each onto both of the threads and go back through the Bead of origination and cross over yet again as is shown in the illustrations for this step, this would result in a loop.
Step 15

Now slide on 4 more Beads onto both threads and cross over through the fifth Bead; slide one Bead each onto both threads and cross over again through the 3rd Bead. Now slide onto left thread 4 more Beads and onto the right thread 3 more. Slide the red thread downwards through the crystals as being shown in the illustrations. Secure the right end with the last Bead and with one of the Beads from the row behind. Now move this thread through 5 Beads and then out as shown in the illustrations with this step, also insert 7 more Beads onto this thread and finally secure this thread end and move this thread though some of the Beads until you reach somewhere near at the point we are at in the illustration at this point. Secure the red thread also as shown in the illustration in this step.
Step 16

Now slide in Swarovski Bead article 4327, 40x27mm White Opal as shown in the illustrations in this step and slide on 6 more Beads on to the red thread end and secure this thread end as shown in the illustrations. Once the Swarovski Bead article 4327, 40x27mm White Opal is well in place insert 11 Beads onto the blue thread secure it with the Bead shown in the illustration and move back through 4 of the Beads and come out to insert 7 more Beads onto the thread end.
Step 17

Now secure both thread ends by sliding them through the Beads and cut off the left over thread ends as being depicted in the illustrations for this step.
Step 18

With the help of a side cutter cut an 80 cm silver chain and slide it through the loop of the drop prepared in the previous step as is clearly visible in the illustrations for this step.
Step 19

Now with the help of flat nose pliers insert in a 5mm jumpring to one end of the chain and a lobster clasp with the help of another 5mm jumpring to the other end of the chain.
