Learn how to make this "All That Sparkles" Necklace using Swarovski Crystal Clear Bicones, Toho Seed Beads and a Swarovski 12mm Jet Rivoli.

Step 1

Begin by bezelling the 12mm rivoli.
Pick up 28 delica beads, join in a circle, and add 2 rounds of delica beads using peyote stitch.
Add 2 more rounds using 15/o seed beads.
This finishes the back of the bezel.
Sew your thread to the front of your work and add 2 rounds of delica beads using peyote stitch.
Place your 12 mm rivoli into your piece, and add 1 round of 15/o seed beads to close.

Step 2

Bring your thread to the outer edge of your bezel, and add 1 15/o seed bead in-between each delica along the edge.
Step up through the first 15/o that you added.
Pick up 1 4mm crystal and sew through the next size 15/o.
Repeat till the end of the round.
Step up by passing through the first crystal you added.
Pick up 1 size 15/o seed bead and sew through the next crystal.
Repeat till the end of the round.
Exit your thread from a 15/o seed bead.
Pick up 6 15/o seed beads, skip the crystal, and sew through the next 15/o (between the crystals.)
Repeat till the end of the round.

Step 3

Bring your thread to the back of your work, exiting from a delica bead above a crystal.
*Pick up 20 delica beads, 1 black crystal and 3 more delica beads.
Skip the 3 delica beads and sew through the black crystal and all 20 delica beads back in the direction of your work.
This is your centre dangle complete.
Sew through the delica above the next crystal, and repeat from *, but only add 18 delica this time.
Repeat 2 more times, adding 16 and then 14 delica.
Work your thread back to the centre dangle and repeat for the opposite side.
Sew your thread into your work securely and cut.

Step 4

Make the chain by using potawatomi stitch.
