Instructions

First make the heart the dangle. Take a 3 inch piece of wire and thread on the Swarovski heart (SWBB-3603). Use the briolette wire wrapping technique. Thread on one of the bicone crystals (SWC-1013). Finish with a wire wrapped loop. Cut off excess wire. Set aside.Take one of the copper curved tubes (BMB-5327) and bend it in a “U” shape using the 5mm side of a pair of bail making pliers (XTL-00310). Thread the copper Softflex (XCR-5093) through the bent copper tube until you have the same length coming out of each end of the tube.Thread 4 Czech seed beads onto each of the Softflex wires. Thread one of the larger copper spacer beads (BMB-3610) onto both wires this time. Slide all the way up to the seed beads you threaded on earlier.Thread one of the Swarovski round beads (SWC-0413) onto one of the wires.Thread the heart dangle onto the other wire.Thread a small copper spacer bead (BMB-3604) onto both wires.Thread a copper tube onto one wire.Thread 11 seed beads onto the other wire.Thread a large copper spacer bead onto both wires.Thread a small bicone onto one wire.Thread a small copper spacer bead onto both wires.Take one of the hammered round connector beads (BMB-3362) and thread one of the wires through the hole on one side and thread the other wire through the same hole on the other side (The wires will automatically criss-cross). Now thread the wires through the other hole in the same criss-cross manner as before (you should have one wire laying on top of one side of the connector and the other wire laying on top of the other side) (See Photo).Thread a small copper spacer bead onto both wires.Thread a larger bicone (SWBB-1413) onto one wire.Thread 6 seed beads onto the other wire.Thread a larger spacer bead onto both wires.Thread 4 seed beads and 1 copper tube onto one wire.Thread 6 seed beads, a round Swarovski crystal, and 8 more seed beads onto the other wire.Thread a small copper spacer onto both wires.Thread 8 seed beads onto one wire.Thread a small bicone, a seed bead, a small bicone, a seed bead, and one more small bicone onto the other wire.Thread a larger copper spacer bead onto both wires.Take the second hammered round connector beads and repeat the same step above.Thread on a small copper spacer bead onto both wires.Thread 7 seed beads, a larger bicone, and 4 more seed beads onto one wire.Thread a seed bead, a larger bicone, 7 seed beads, and a larger bicone onto the other wire.Thread a large copper spacer bead onto both wires.Thread a round Swarovski crystal onto one wire.Thread a small copper spacer bead onto both wires.Thread a small bicone and 4 seed beads onto one wire.Thread 3 seed beads and one small bicone onto the other wire.Thread a copper crimp (FCR-1622) onto both wires.
