DeLite Shimmer Necklace

Step 1

Take your Imperial Cut crystals and secure them all into their matching settings by pushing down the 4 prongs around the crystal. Cut a length of beading thread measuring approx. 20" and add a needle to one end. 

Pick up the following - 

1 x bicone, 1 x burgundy stone, 1 x bicone, 1 x small light grey stone 

1 x bicone, 1 x cappuccino stone, 1 x bicone, 1 x large light grey stone 

1 x burgundy, 1 x large light grey, 1 x burgundy, 1 x large light grey stone

1 x bicone, 1 x cappuccino, 1 x bicone, 1 x small light grey stone

1 x bicone, 1 x burgundy, 1 x bicone


Step 1

Step 2

Pick up one side of your connector chain. 

Next pick up 1 x bicone and thread through the lower hole in the burgundy stone at the end. 


Step 1

Step 3

Pick up 1 x bicone and thread through the light grey and continue to add a bicone between each of the stones. This will make a curved shape as there were no bicones added at the centre on the top row. 

Step 1

Step 4

Once you've added all the bicones along the bottom row, add one more bicone after the last burgundy stone. Pick up the other side of your connector chain and knot your thread to the starting thread from where you began. Before you knot a second time to secure, make sure your crystals hang correctly and check that they aren't too close together or too far apart.

Once you're happy, knot a second time and take your needle through the next few beads/stone holes. Knot this thread to the taught thread between two beads. Travel through a few more beads and repeat this, knotting the working thread to the taught thread. Once you're happy it can't unravel, trim off the excess thread and repeat this process with your other tail thread.
