Follow the steps on how to make this sparkly 'Barn Owl'  pendant necklace using snowflakes,  wood beads and shamballa fashion beads.

Step 1

Thread directly onto your reel of wire. Thread on 1 wood bead and 1 x snowflake. Repeat 9 times. Add a shamballa bead. Add 1 x wood bead and 1 x snowflake. Repeat 3 times and add another wood bead. Add a shamballa bead. Repeat the 1 x wood bead and 1 x snowflake pattern another 5 times. Add a shamballa bead. Add a wood bead and another snowflake. Repeat 4 times, adding 3 snowflakes after the final wood bead. Thread on your owl pendant. Repeat the pattern you’ve just created on the other half,  in reverse, to create a symmetrical necklace.

Step 2

Trim your wire, leaving about 2 inches of excess on each side. Thread one end of wire through a calotte crimp from your findings kit, followed by a crimp bead. Push both down. Squash crimp bead flush to the moonstone beads and close the calotte over it tightly. Trim wire. Attach a jumpring to the end of the calotte, followed by a lobster clasp from the findings kit. Repeat this on the opposite side to attach another calotte, however simply add a jumpring through the loop of it to finish.
