  • 1. Pass a head pin through a crystal copper 8mm bead. Hold the bead inside the pendant opening and pass the head pin outward through the drilled holes on the pendant. Make a wrapped loop to attach the head pin to the enhancer bail.
  • 2. Cut a 4" piece of beading wire and pass one end under the head pin on the inner circle of the pendant. String the crystal golden shadow beads onto the wire, then pass the wire end under the head pin and through the first few beads to form a beaded ring. Press the beads down into the channels, then trim off any extra wire.
  • 3. Cut a 6" piece of beading wire and use the same technique from Step 2 to add smoked topaz beads to the outer channel on the pendant.
  • 4. Connect the bail to the center of the polyester chain and use two jump rings to attach each half of the clasp to the necklace ends.
