Use your nipper tool to cut a two, 24 inch pieces of beading wire.
String around 7 inches of seed beads on each strand. Then, bring the strands together and string them through a bead cap, an onyx bead, another bead cap, 3 seed beads and a final onyx bead. Then string them through your pendant and repeat on the other side.
On each end, string both strands together through a crimp bead, around one end of your toggle and then back through your crimp bead and the first few seed beads. Pull it tightly, crimp the crimp bead and then trim the excess wire with your nipper tool.
Use the round part of your designer crimper tool to place a crimp cover over each of your crimp beads. Enjoy!

I made this necklace with using black and white striped bead in place of the onyx beads. The pendant was a classic touch to the necklace. Love the projects and videos. Thanks so much and keep them coming!
