1. Cut a 1 1/2 in. (3.8cm) piece of 22 gauge wire. On one end, make a plain loop. String a pencil pendant and make a plain loop. Make three pencil connectors.

2. Cut a 2in. (5 cm) piece of 22 gauge wire. On one end, make a plain loop. String a rondelle, a pencil pendant, and a rondelle. Make a plain loop. Make two multi-bead connectors.

3. On a head pin, string an 11 aught seed bead and a rectangle bead. Make a plain loop. Make 32 bead units.

4. Open the loops of a multi-bead connector and attach two bead units to one loop and one bead unit to the other. Close the loops. Make a second connector the mirror image of the first.

5. Cut two 18 link pieces of chain. On each chain, skip a link and attach a bead unit. Attach four more bead units, skipping two links between each, leaving an empty link on the end. Repeat with two 21 link chains, each with seven bead units.

6. Open a jump ring and attach an end link of an 18 and a 21 link chain and a loop of a pencil connector. Repeat on the other loop of the pencil connector.

7. On each side, use a jump ring to attach the end link of each chain and a loop of a pencil connector.

8. On each side, open the remaining loop of the pencil connector and attach the loop of a multi-bead connector from step 4.

9. Cut a 13 in (33cm) and a 14in (36cm) piece of beading wire. On the shorter wire, string a rondelle, a crimp tube, and the remaining loop of the multi-bead connector. Go back through the beads just strung and tighten the wire. Repeat with the longer beading wire, attaching it below the shorter wire. Repeat on the other side.

10. On each end, string rondelles until the strand is within 1in. (2.5cm) of the finished length. String a crimp tube and the corresponding loop of half of a toggle clasp. Check the fit and add or remove beads if necessary. Go back through the beads just strung. Tighten the wire, make a flattened crimp, and trim the excess wire.

When finished, this makes a beautiful necklace. It is not one of those quicky projects because you will be spending a little quality time stringing this one together, but it looks like it will be well worth the effort that you put into it. The instructions are easy to follow, but the project will take some time.

This is a gorgeous crystal necklace! I like how it's colorful which is different than your typical blingy crystal jewelry!
