Step 1

For the pendant-
 Thread on appox 20 beads to elastic leaving approx 30cm either side, when elastic has been double knotted. Repeat this process with approx 15 beads and double knot. Trim your elastic. To add the Swarovski heart, simply attach with a small piece of elastic between the centre-middle beads.

Step 2

Take approx 30cm of wire. Thread the end of the wire through a crimp bed,  round the elastic on the top left side of the pendant, and back through the crimp bead. Crush the crimp bead flat with pliers or create a more rounded look with crimp pliers. Trim any excess wire.

Step 3

Thread beads onto the wire, leaving approx1cm left at the end. Thread the end through a crimp bead, then through a lobster clasp and back through the crimp bead. Crush the crimp bead.

Step 4

Repeat step 2 and 3 on the other side of the pendant, attaching the chain extension instead of a clasp at the end of the wire.
