Learn how to make the basic links. Take one eye pin. Slip in a pearl. Using needle nose pliers, you have to bend the eye pin to 90 degrees. Then take the round nose pliers to make a perfect circle. Repeat this process with the crystal and glittery beads.
Take one pearl short strand and one crystal link. Grab needle nose pliers. Use this tool to connect the strands by closing the loop.
Now that you have a medium length strand, make it longer by adding more crystal links. Look at the picture for the finished look.
Continue this process until you get a whole long strand. Repeat similar steps for the second and third length. Make sure each has different length.
It is time to make these strands in line. Take a silver pin (you can use eye pin if you want). Use pliers to make small loop at the outer strand. Lead the silver pin to the following orders: crystal bead, loop, crystal bead, loop, crystal bead, loop, and the last crystal bead. Refer to the image for the complete process.
At the end of the silver pin, you have to make mini loop. Take the pliers to help you with the job, then trim the excessive wire. Make sure to slip the extra wire to the bead’s circle.
Add the silver pin strand on the next side. Remember, it must be attached to both sides. Basically you need to repeat step 5 and 6 mentioned above.
For the final part, you are going to need jump rings. Attach them to the end of each strand. Then grab the three strand clasp. Hook the jumps ring to the strand and lock.
Take several jump rings. Now you need it to attach lobster claw clasp. Don’t forget to make a short extension chain as well.
