Re-create this design for a sparkly autumn-inspired jewelry statement. The layered strands of chain and Preciosa Czech crystal are in line with current fashion trends and are sure to be a favorite when combined with the dangle earrings.
The faceted crystal leaves are beautifully complemented by the antique brass-plated chain with leaf charms swinging from each link. The ice-pick bails not only let you instantly create pendants, they also add a decorative element to the design.
Create this attention-getting design for a fashionable fall that's full of sparkle!
Cut two 14-inch lengths of Accu-Flex® professional quality beading wire.
String a crimp and an Accu-Guard™ wire protector onto one beading wire. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the Accu-Guard leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end. Crimp then add a crimp cover.
String one 3mm bicone then the following pattern:
String one 5x1.5mm beaded rondelle then repeat the pattern in the opposite direction.
One 4x1mm beaded rondelle
One 4mm round
One 4mm bicone
One 6mm bicone
Continue to string the following:
One 4.5x3mm smooth saucer
Three 3mm bicones
One 4.5x3mm smooth saucer
Repeat the patterns from Steps 3 and 4 a total of four times then add another Step 3 pattern. String a 4.5x3mm smooth saucer and a 3mm bicone.
