  • side cutter
  • sround-nose pliers

  1. Place one foil-lined heart on a sterling head pin. The ‘dimple’ of the heart should be at the bottom of the head pin. Using roundnose pliers, make a small loop (pictured below). Repeat two more times, for a total of three heart dangles. Set aside.

  2. Cut approximately 20" to 22" of Beadalon. (Finished length of the necklace pictured is 17.5".)
  3. String the Beadalon through one crimp tube and one sterling jump ring.
  4. String the Beadalon back through the crimp tube. Flatten the crimp tube with flat-nose pliers, and trim excess Beadalon.
  5. String seed beads, crystal bicones, crystal cubes and one foil-lined heart bead onto Beadalon, as shown in picture. Add one seed bead, one heart dangle, one seed bead and one foil-lined heart. Continue repeating pattern as shown. Hint: In example pictured, 9 seed beads separate the crystal bicones. To lengthen or shorten the necklace, add or subtract seed beads in equal amounts between the bicones.
  6. Finish necklace by adding one crimp bead and the sterling lobster clasp. String Beadalon back through crimp tube and a few seed beads. Flatten crimp bead and trim excess Beadalon.
