I love Miyuki Seed Bead Mixes that have all the different sizes and shapes of beads.  It really gives a design dimension!   

Kelly McCoy, Auntie’s Beads Designer

The following project uses beading chain and crimp ends.  If you are new to the using crimp ends with beading chain, I recommend watching our How to End Beading Chain Video.

This project also uses split rings.  If you are new to using split rings, I also recommend watching our Split Ring and Jump Rings Video.

1.  Use your nipper tool to cut an 18" piece of beading wire.  On one end, attach a crimp end. 
 
2.  One each of your ten headpins, place between 4 and 6 seed beads (usually 5, but use 4 if you choose especially large beads or 6 if they are especially small).  The goal is to make your drops of slightly varying sizes to create interest.
 
3. Above the seed beads on each headpin, use your wire looping pliers to make a loop and wrap the wire around itself a couple of times.  Trim the excess wire. 
 
4.  On your beading chain, string a pattern of sterling silver round, seed bead drop, 4mm round until you have strung all of your drops.  End on a 4mm round.
 
5. Add a crimp end to the other end of your beading chain.  Use a split ring to attach a lobster claw clasp.
