Tools and Materials Needed:
- Cut a piece of beading wire measuring about 10". String a crimp bead toward one end. Run the wire through half of the toggle then back down through the crimp bead. Crimp. Apply crimp cover.
- String a filigree bead cap and a 6mm bicone followed by a fluted bead cap and 12mm disco bead.
- String the following pattern: pewter spacer, a gunmetal/crystal spacer, pewter spacer, 16mm red disco bead, pewter spacer, a gunmetal/crystal spacer, pewter spacer and a 16mm green disco bead. (You will not be able to see the pewter spacers, but they help anchor the large hole gunmetal/crystal spacers so they don't sag on the beading wire.)
- Repeat step 3 two more times.
- String the following: 16mm red disco bead, a pewter spacer, a gunmetal/crystal spacer, a pewter spacer, a 12mm green disco bead and a fluted bead cap.
- String a 6mm bicone, filigree bead cap and a crimp bead. Run your wire through the other half of the toggle then back down through the beads just added. Crimp. Apply crimp cover. Cut excess wire.
