                STEP 1         

      Place a clip on one end of the wire so that the beads will not slide off the wire as they are threaded.

       

       

       

                STEP 2         

      Place one 4mm sterling silver ball, one daisy spacer, and 10 round black 4mm crystals on the wire and slide them down to the end with the clip.

       

       

       

                STEP 3         

      Thread one daisy spacer, one 4mm sterling ball, one clear Bicone crystal, another silver ball, a daisy spacer and 10 round black 4mm crystals on the wire.

       

       

       

                STEP 4         

      Thread one daisy spacer, one 4mm sterling ball, one clear Bicone crystal, another silver ball, a daisy spacer and 10 round black 4mm crystals on the wire.

       

       

       

                STEP 5         

      Add one daisy spacer, a 4mm silver ball, a 6mm black Bicone crystal, a daisy spacer, a large 8mm clear Bicone crystal, a daisy spacer, a 6mm black Bicone crystal, a 4mm silver ball, and a daisy spacer.

       

       

       

                STEP 6         

      Add three round black crystals.


                STEP 7         

      Add one daisy spacer, a 4mm silver ball, a 6mm black Bicone crystal, a daisy spacer, a large 8mm clear Bicone crystal, a daisy spacer, a 6mm black Bicone crystal, a 4mm silver ball, and a daisy spacer.

       

       

                STEP 8         

      Add three round black crystals.

       

       

       

                STEP 9         

      Add one daisy spacer, a 4mm silver ball, a 6mm black Bicone crystal, a daisy spacer, a large 8mm clear Bicone crystal, a daisy spacer, a 6mm black Bicone crystal, a 4mm silver ball, and a daisy spacer.

       

       

       

                STEP 10         

      Add 10 round black 4mm crystals.

       

       

       

                STEP 11         

      Thread one daisy spacer, one 4mm sterling ball, one clear Bicone crystal, another silver ball, a daisy spacer and 10 round black 4mm crystals on the wire.

       

       

       

                STEP 12         

      Repeat again: thread one daisy spacer, one 4mm sterling ball, one clear Bicone crystal, another silver ball, a daisy spacer and 10 round black 4mm crystals on the wire.

       

       

       

                STEP 13         

      Finish by adding one daisy spacer, one 4mm silver ball.

       

       

       

                STEP 14         

      Check your necklace to make sure that it is the length desired.  If not, add or remove beads from each end to fit.

       

       

       

                STEP 15         

      Add one crimp tube and thread the end of the wire through the small horseshoe-shaped wire protector.

       

       

       

                STEP 16         

      Slip the connector loop of the toggle bar in the rounded space of the wire protector.  

       

       

       

                STEP 17         

      Thread the wire back through the crimp tube and down through several adjacent beads.  Pull the wire tight so that the beads conceal the wire.

       

       

       

                STEP 18         

      Using the inside opening on the jaws of a pair of crimping pliers, gently flatten the crimp tube.  It will flatten with a line down the middle, hopefully with a piece of wire running through each half of the crimp tube. 

       

       

       

                STEP 19         

      Crimp the tube a second time by placing it in the outside opening on the jaws of the crimping pliers. This should fold the crimp tube in half, placing a tight hold on the wire. If the crimp seems loose, take a pair of Chain Nose Wubbers and gently flatten the crimp tube a bit more.

       

       

       

                STEP 20         

      Remove the clip from the other end. Add one crimp tube and thread the end of the wire through the small horseshoe-shaped wire protector.  Slip the connector loop of the round toggle in the rounded space of the wire protector.   Using the inside opening on the jaws of a pair of crimping pliers, gently flatten the crimp tube.  It will flatten with a line down the middle, hopefully with a piece of wire running through each half of the crimp tube. 

      Crimp the tube a second time by placing it in the outside opening on the jaws of the crimping pliers.
