  • Instructions
  • Supplies

Beadalon jewelry wire can be used in so many ways in many different projects. In this glittering necklace, Katie Hacker shows off how the beautiful drape of 49-strand stringing wire from Beadalon works perfectly in floating bead designs. The wire practically disappears to let the beads stand out, yet still provides an elegant and sturdy foundation that you can crimp to easily. This is a great way to practice your crimping if you're a beginner. Learn how to make this necklace and add a Sparkling Illusion to your style! Watch Katie Hacker as she shows you how easy it is to create this necklace in this Mini Tutorial.
