Pendant made of Czech beads

Our manual will help you to create a pendant using strung beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand. You will see that this is very simple. The following is merely a suggestion for the basic procedure. You are sure to appreciate the opportunity to make use of your own creative skills, to adapt the appearance and size of the pendant and to choose the material composition and the colors according to your options and your requirements.

Step 1

Start with the linking process. Place a bead on the eye pin and turn the end of the pin using pliers, hang it on the chain and close it completely.


Step 2

Continue with the rings and the rondelles. String 6 x 6 mm topaz beads onto the wire and place smaller rondelles between the beads. The topaz bead forms one end and the rondelle forms the other, tie the wires with two knots (pull them tight) and then cut them so that each end of the wire from the knot is hidden under the rondelle.


Step 3

Then continue with the pendants. Cut the chain to the required length. 3a) First link the end spike to the chain (string a pear, a larger rondelle and a 10 mm bead). 3b) Leave out the two links and connect a bead on the right-hand side of the third one. 3c) Connect the 6 mm bead one link above and turned to the other side. 3d) Leave out one link and then once again connect a 6 mm bead in the same direction as the 8 mm bead. 3e) Connect the 4 mm bead on the other side of the very next link. 3f) Connect the last 4 mm bead two links above and then turn it over again. 


Step 4

The assembly of the pendant then follows. Attach the large metal rings to the rings. Add 4 chain links to one metal ring and attach a small ring to the second one. Attach one ring from the bead with the large ring to the two prepared rings on the snap hook and attach the second ring to the small ring. Connect the linked chains to the large ring and add them again to the two rings on the snap hook.
