This design is from our inspirations archive. As this design was created some time ago we sadly no longer stock all the products to create our design, but can still be useful for inspiration. 

Step 1

 Cut approx. 17cm of beading wire. (It’s always better to overestimate lengths.)
Thread on 2 Crimp beads then one of the toggle clasp components. Thread your wire back through the crimps and crimp in place. (We’ve added 2 crimps for extra security)

Step 2

 Thread on the pearls and crystals in any order you wish. We have added 2 Pearls,  2 Rondelles, 3 Pearls.

Step 3

Once you have added 7 beads on to your strand you will need to thread on an additional 2 crimp beads. Then thread your wire through the Swallow pendant and crimp in place. Cut off any excess wire.

Step 4

Cut approx. 42cm of wire. Thread on 2 crimp beads and thread though the other side of the swallow and crimp in place.

Step 5

Add on the remaining beads. We have added them in the following order:  2 Pearl Beads, 1 Rondelle,  1Pearl,  1Rondelle, 3 Pearls, 1 Metal Spacer Bead, 2 Pearls, 1 Rondelle and 11 Pearls.

Step 6

 Thread on 2 crimp beads then the other component of the toggle. Crimp in place.
