Step 1: Create your beaded drops. A: Use the basic linking technique to secure your beads onto your head pins. B: For rough cut beads: String your bead onto one 1.5” pearl head pin. Form a wrapped loop. Begin with a 90 degree bend near the top of your bead. Use your rosary pliers to form a simple loop with the tail overlapping. Wrap the tail tightly down the neck of the wire to create coils.

Step 2: Create your filigree wrapped cabochon
A: Open the filigree droplet and place the ceramic cabochon inside.
B: Bend three of the prongs around the ceramic cabochon and tighten with your chain nose pliers.
C: Use your rosary pliers to curl the fourth prong downward forming a loop at the to of the cabochon.

Step 3: Crimp the ends of the leather
A: Place the end of the leather strand inside the crimp end.
Enjoy your necklace!
