Frosted Crystal Necklace

By:

This winter, let your jewelry complement the outdoors with a beautiful frosted crystal necklace! Use our beaded necklace patterns and this easy video tutorial to learn how to make your own.

Materials:

  • 8mm clear round glass beads
  • 8mm clear faceted glass beads
  • 6mm matte white faceted glass beads
  • Crimp covers
  • Crimp beads
  • A spring ring clasp
  • .019” diameter beading wire, preferably silvery white
  • Wire cutters
  • Crimping pliers
  • Long-nose pliers
  • A ruler

Instructions:

  1. Measure and cut your beading wire. The length should be two times the length of your desired finished length plus 4”.
     
  2. Close the loop on your spring ring clasp.
     
  3. Thread your beading wire through the clasp loop and center the clasp on the beading wire. String a crimp bead on both wires and crimp it near the clasp.
     
  4. String three random beads on one strand of wire and two random beads on the other strand. String a crimp bead on both wires and crimp it about 2” from your first crimp bead.
     
  5. String two random beads on one strand of wire and one bead on the other strand. String a crimp bead on both wires and crimp it about 1-1/2” from your last crimp bead.
     
  6. Continue this bead design and crimping until you have reached your desired length.
     
  7. Before you crimp your last crimp bead, string on the other half of your clasp and thread the wire ends back through the crimp bead, forming a loop. Crimp the crimp bead in place and trim the wire ends. Attach your crimp covers and close them securely.
