Editor’s note: To keep the crystals from sliding inside the chain and to hide the beading wire between the crystals, adapt the instructions as follows:
Work steps 1–3 of “String the crystals.”
String a 2mm round silver bead, a 4mm crystal, and a 2mm bead. Position the crystal under the two 5.5mm jump rings.
Repeat this pattern, ending with a crimp bead instead of a 2mm bead. The photos below show the crystals’ placement on the top, side, and bottom of the chain.
