STEP 1: Form two bends in the middle of the wire. The gap in between the bends should be 4mm wide.

 

 

 

 


STEP 2: Pull both ends through the back of a diamante setting, as shown on the photo above.

 

 

 

 


STEP 3: Slide a crystal bead onto the lower wire.

 

 

 

 

 


STEP 4: Keep pulling both wires through drop diamantes. After adding each diamante, slide a crystal bead onto the lower wire.

 

 

 

 


STEP 5: After you add all five diamantes and five crystals, tighten the wire, pushing the narrow parts of the drop diamantes together.

 

 

 


STEP 6: Pull both wires though the holes in the setting of the first diamante.

 

 

 

 


STEP 7: Bring the wires together and twist a double wire segment approx. 3cm long.

 

 

 

 


STEP 8: Try to twist the wire as evenly as possible.

 

 

 

 

 

STEP 9: Use round nose pliers to create a loop approx. 3mm above the ornament.

 

 

 

 


STEP 10: The loop should be approx. 3mm wide.

 

 

 

 

 


STEP 11: Wrap the twisted wire neatly around the short segment in between the loop and the ornament.

 

 

 

 


STEP 12: Cut off all remaining wire, using wire cutters. Press on the wire ends, tucking the wire ends in, slotting them under the wrapped loop.

 

 

 


STEP 13: Using pliers or your hands, open the bail, making the gap wider.

 

 

 

 


STEP 14: Insert the chain necklace and the ornament into the bail.

 

 

 

 


STEP 15: Use pliers to close the bail, making the gap within the bail narrow.
