Step 1: Cut 2 lengths of
Beadalon 22" and 20 inches.
Step 2: Start with the 22
inches by stringing a crimp bead, 4mm crystal, spacer bead, flat rectangle,
another spacer, a crystal and a crimp bead, find the center of the string
and crimp the cluster of beads in place by crushing the crimp beads.
Step 3: Move 1/2 " in each
direction both right and left from the center cluster. String a crimp
bead, aqua star and another crimp bead. Crush the crimp beads.
Step 4: Move another 1/2"
away from each of the stars to place another bead cluster as in step
2. At this point you have 3 bead clusters and 2 stars in place.
Step 5: Move another 1/2"
away from the clusters and place a star by repeating step 3.
Step 6: Finally move another
1/2" away from the stars to place a bead clusters. Now you have 5 bead
clusters and 4 stars.
Step 7: Start with the 20
inch long string by placing a bead cluster in the center, but this
time move 3/4" on each direction to place a star, then move another
3/4" from each of the stars to place another bead cluster.
Step 8: Bring the strings
together, adjust until it looks nice. String both strands on one
side through a crimp bead and a toggle part. Double back through
the crimp bead and pull tight and crush the crimp bead. Cut off excess
string. Repeat for the other side. Enjoy!
