What advice would you give someone starting this project? This uses double flexible beading wires, so be sure to check the hole sizes of your beads. I had a few of the swarovski that were not usable due to variations of hole sizes.

I just created as i went. but if you would like i could give you some of the specifics. I used 2 pieces of 7 strand silver color beading wire, and cut them about 2 x the length i needed. I measured to see where the center would be and then added about 2 inches. then I put bead bugs on at that point. I added what I wanted to be in the center, then 5 4mm swarovski crystals on each of the wire, added the same type of center stone, then I went thru to the opposite side from both directions with the beading wire and snugged it up, and added 5 more 4 mm beads.then using both wires go thru one 4mm bead , one main bead 2 lilac beads and a purple bead.; attached bead bugs at this point to hold all in place and repeat on the other side. snug up as you go. You should have quite bit of left over wire on each end. for the beaded loop,...i added a crimp bead then as many 4mm beads as needed to make the loop the size i wanted, then i threaded the wire back thru the crimp, snugged it up and crimped it down. if you can get it back thru some of the other beads before crimping it would look nicer. once you have it crimped, using the tip of your steel wire cutters, cut the wire as close to the bead as possible without cutting the other wires. for the hook side, i added a crimp, made a beading wire loop, went back thru the crimp , snugged all down and crimped. Using a 20 gauge piece of silver color artistic wire, i made a wire wrapped looped, and before closing it, i slipped the beading wire into the loop, then closed and wrapped it. I threaded some 4mm beads onto the 20 gauge wire to obtain the size hook i wanted, and used my bailing pliers to make a shapped hook,, then made a small loop on the end of the wire. clipped the wire and that was it. i know these are not really specific, but if you have questions please ask. i will do my best to answer. thanks so much for your interest.
