I have always been a fan of bead frames and think they are great when you want to use a Swarovski crystal mix and seed beads to create a long necklace. To create this piece, I used the Modern Vintage mix and gunmetal seed beads, but you can really play with color to get any look you want!

NOTE:If you are using a mix, you may want to establish a pattern with your beads before you begin. Regardless, you will want to place your crystals inside the bead frames before you begin to make the stringing project faster and easier.
  1. Cut a piece of beading wire measuring about 36”. Put a bead stopper at one end.
  2. String 8 seed beads, a crimp bead, and 1 more seed bead. String a bead frame with a crystal inside.
  3. String 10 seed beads followed by a bead frame with a crystal inside. Repeat this until you have used all 30 of your bead frames.
  4. Remove the bead stopper then run your beading wire through the seed beads and crimp bead and bead frame used to begin the piece. Crimp. Cut excess wire.
