2 – 2mm crimp beads

Instructions:

Step 1:     Lay out all crystal pendants and hammered circles per your liking. Per the picture, the 6926 36mm Crystal drop hangs from the middle. The rest of the drops should form an arrow shape with the 6926 hanging the lowest. Keeping the pendants laid out, attach the appropriate size jump ring for each pendant. Most of the drops will only need one jump ring. Note: at the end you may need to add a small jump ring to some of the pendants because of the direction that the pendants hang.

Step 2:     Beginning with the middle pendant, 6926 add the chain piece to the jump ring. Before snipping the chain off, you need to decide the length you want the pendant to hang from the neck piece. Once you have, working first to the right of the pendant, then to the left of the center pendant add the chain to the next drop with the desired length. Once you have done one side you may match the chain lengths to the opposite side so that they are even. 

Step 3:     Using the beading wire, tape off one side, then string on from the last chain link (in order of placement), separating each chain dangle with 1 5328 4mm Crystal AB2X until all link are added. Tape off the open side. Lift piece up so you can check the placement of the drops and if they hang in the correct direction.

Step 4:     Open one side of the beading wire. String on 1 5328 4mm Crystal AB2X, 1 5030 6mm Denim Blue crystal. Repeat this pattern until you have 22 5040s strung, ending with 1 5328 4mm Crystal AB2X. Tape end. 

Step 5:     Repeat step 4 for the opposite side. Crimp the wire ends to 1 lobster clasp and 1 jump ring. Snip wire ends and attach crimp covers.
