Cut a 6-inch length of beading wire.
Start beading the center groups for each strand. See how to place bead groups on the beading wire by following the diagram. Start from the center point (the indicolite drop) and work your way out evenly on the sides.
Crimp a crimp bead onto each side of the bead group.
Use a crimp to attach the ends of the wires to the bottom of each crystal link. Keep in mind to pull the tails through until the amount of wire left is even on both sides and the amount visible is similar to that in the photo (¾-inch).
