Artbeads Designer Blends featuring Swarovski Crystal create the perfect color palette in this intricate necklace design. Cheri used the 1-step looper from The Beadsmith to make custom beaded link chain featuring her chosen Blends. A bold tassel with a beaded cap completes the look. You can see more ideas for using Artbeads Designer Blends in your jewelry in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
We used The Beadsmith 1-step 2.25mm looper plier to make the simple loops for our beaded links. If you prefer, you can make simple loops with the help of chain and round nose pliers, instead. It is important to note that one 1-inch antique brass-plated 20 gauge eye pin is long enough to make two links.
