Description

I love brilliant colors in our Chinese crystal faceted round beads. The obvious choice to go with this metallic blue color would have been copper, but I wanted to mix it up a bit, so I paired it with antique brass beads and findings instead. The antique brass makes the blue that much more vibrant. I love it!

Shanna Steele, Aunties Beads Designer

Instructions:


If you have never worked with beading chain before, please watch the Beading Chain Necklace Video.
  1. Cut a piece of beading chain measuring about 17". Put a crimp end toward one end. Use your chain nose pliers to secure the crimp end.
  2. String a crimp bead. Then string the following pattern 7 times: brass bead, bead cap, crystal round bead, bead cap. String a brass bead and a crimp bead.
  3. Put your other crimp end at the other end of your beading chain. Secure the crimp end.
  4. Make sure your beads are centered on the necklace. You may want to use a bead stopper on one side once you have determined that your beads are centered. Crimp each crimp bead. Apply crimp covers.
  5. Open a jump ring. Attach it to one of the crimp ends and then to the clasp. Close the jump ring.
  6. Cut a 3" piece of chain. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the other crimp end and then to one end of the piece of chain. Close the jump ring.
