Swarovski Christmas Trees Tutorial

(click here to buy a christmas tree supply kit)

To make these, you will need:

1. Pliers
2. Swarovski crystal evergreen flower beads, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm (one each)
3. Swarovski square bead, 6mm
4. Swarovski bicone bead, 4mm
5. Bronze head pin (about 1.5")
6. Bronze jump ring (6-8mm)
7. Bronze chain

To start your Christmas tree, place the square bead at the base of the headpin, then add the 4 flower beads starting with the largest and ending with the smallest.  Add the bicone bead for the star.

Cut the headpin with your pliers about 3/8 inch above the star.  With your pliers, grab hold of the very tip of the headpin and bend it down in a circular motion to create a loop.

Open and attach the jump ring to your loop and place on the bronze chain to finish your necklace.  Make sure the jump ring is closed tightly after so it doesn't fall off.

And that's it! Easy, quick and fun!
