Down by the Sea Shore Necklace Tutorial
Created by: Summer Melaas Designer Tips Set the crystal AB sea urchin stone in the bezel, and use chain-nose pliers to carefully fold the prongs down over the crystal. Use bronze wire or a gold-fill eye pin to make a beaded link with 2 keishi pearl beads topped by a 4mm Crystal AB rondelle bead. Attach the top of this link to the bezel, and the bottom to the teardrop. For detailed instructions on making beaded links, see Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF) Continued Below...

Designer Tips, Continued Use bronze wire or gold-fill eye pins to make beaded links with each of the remaining crystal rondelle beads (one bead per link). Hook them together in this order: Attach one end of the chain to 4mm crystal beaded link, then a 6mm bead, then another 4mm bead, then the top loop of the bezel. (Repeat for both sides of the necklace.) Use a jump ring to attach the crystal radiolarian pendant to the inside of the teardrop.
