Tools and Materials Needed:
- To begin, create all of your drop beads/dangles first. You will want to create 10 6mm red drops and 10 8mm cranberry drops. To do this, pick up each bead on a headpin and make a loop. You can either make a simple loop (as I did) or make a wrapped loop.
- On an 8mm jump ring, pick up a 6mm drop, 2 8mm drops and another 6mm drop. Close the jump ring.
- Repeat step 2 four more times until all of your drops have been added to jump rings.
- Cut a piece of beading wire measuring about 10". String a crimp bead toward one end. Run your wire through half of the toggle then back down through the crimp bead. Crimp. Apply crimp cover.
- String the following: 8mm evergreen pearl, 8mm cranberry pearl, a fluted bead cap, 12mm evergreen pearl and another fluted bead cap. Make sure your bead caps are cupping the evergreen pearl. String an 8mm cranberry bead.
- String a fluted bead cap, 14mm evergreen pearl and a fluted bead cap. Then string a 4mm jump ring, an 8mm jump ring with drop beads and another 4mm jump ring.
- Repeat step 6 four more times until you have used all of your beaded drops.
- String a fluted bead cap, 12mm evergreen bead and another fluted bead cap. Then string the following: 8mm cranberry bead, fluted bead cap, 12mm evergreen bead, fluted bead cap, 8mm cranberry bead and 8mm evergreen bead.
- String a crimp bead. Run your wire through the other half of your toggle then back down through the crimp bead and 2 8mm beads just strung. Crimp. Apply crimp cover. Cut excess wire.
- On a headpin, pick up a scalloped bead cap and an 8mm cranberry bead. Make a loop. Wrap the wire and trim the excess. On a headpin, pick up a petal bead cap and a 6mm red bead. Make a loop. Wrap the wire and trim the excess. Open a 4mm jump ring. Add the 2 drops just made to the jump ring. Attach the ring to the loop on the ring portion of the toggle. Close the jump ring.
