Technique

1. Glue the cabochon to the frame. Allow to dry.

2. Create a beaded connector by taking one eye pin and threading one spacer beads, one daisy spacer, one 18mm twisted round bead, one daisy spacer and one spacer bead. Bend the eye pin at a 90 degree angle, measure 1cm, trim and using your round nose pliers make a loop. Take one jump ring and thread the end of the chain attached to the lobster clasp. Take one more jump ring and thread other side of the beaded connector and the frame from step 1.

3. Take six head pins and six 4x6mm rondelle crystal beads. Created crystal beaded-dangles by placing one bead on each head pin and bending your head pin at a 90 degree angle, cutting 1cm from the bend and using your round nose pliers make a loop.

4. Take two head pins, two 10mm Howlite beads and two bead caps. Place on each head pin one bead cap and one Howlite bead. Create beaded dangles by trimming each head pin 1cm from the bead and forming a loop.
