Instructions:

  1. Arrange large beads and bead caps on two head pins in pattern of your choice.

  3. Grasp bend with round nose pliers and wrap wire around pliers as far as possible to start to make a loop. Reposition pliers to finish loop.

  7. Slide a bicone crystal onto a head pin. To make head pin into a dangle, use chain nose pliers to grasp wire just at point where it exits bead. Bend wire at 90-degree angle.  
     
  8. Grasp bend with round nose pliers and wrap wire around pliers as far as possible to start to make a loop. Reposition pliers to finish loop.  
     
  9. Use pliers to slightly open loop and slide through a link of necklace chain ½ inch from split ring at center. Close loop and wrap excess wire around wire coming out of bicone crystal. Use wire cutters to trim excess wire.  
     
  10. Repeat to attach another three bicone crystals, each ½ inch apart along necklace chain.
