Step by Step
Using a bead board arrange beads in the following sequence.
Starting in the centre of the board (at the bottom) use a pair of red crystals. Your pendant will be positioned between these.
Then on either side position a spacer bead, a blue crystal and a long white pearl.
Next thread on a blue crystal, a spacer, a red crystal, a spacer, a blue crystal and a long pearl. Repeat this sequence until you have a total of 5 long pearls on either side.
Next thread on a spacer, a long blue crystal, a spacer, a small red crystal, and a pearl. Add a small red crystal, a spacer, a long blue crystal, a spacer, a small red crystal, a pearl, a small red crystal, a spacer, a long blue crystal, and finally a spacer.
Thread the beads onto beading wire, making a loop at both ends and securing with crimp beads.
When both sides are completed add a lobster claw clasp to one end and a short extender chain with a beaded head pin to finish.
To make the matching earrings thread a blue crystal, a pearl and a red crystal onto a headpin. Turn the end to a loop and attach a earring finding. Repeat to make a second earring.
