CRYSTAL ORNAMENT

(copyright 2010 Deborah Roberti)

Materials:
•2 yards of 8 lb. FireLine
• 50 size 8/0 seed beads: I used Toho #221 Bronze.
• 9 size 6mm bicone crystals: I used Swarovski Siam.
• 8 size 8mm bicone crystals: I used Swarovski Siam.
• one 4-6mm jump ring
• ornament hook

Step 1: Thread your needle with 2 yards of FireLine. String eight seed beads. Leaving about a 6- to 8-inch tail, tie the beads in a double knot, forming a circle of seed beads:

Step 2: Go back around through this circle of seed beads:

Step 3: Go through the next seed bead on this circle of seed beads (highlighted in RED):

Step 4: String a seed bead, an 8mm bicone crystal, a seed bead, a 6mm bicone crystal, a seed bead, an 8mm bicone crystal and a seed bead.

Go around and back through the seed bead that you exited at the end of the last step (highlighted in RED):

Step 5: Go through the next seed bead on this circle of seed beads (highlighted in RED):

Step 6: String a seed bead, an 8mm bicone crystal, a seed bead, a 6mm bicone crystal and a seed bead.

Go around and back up through the 8mm bicone crystal and the seed bead that you added in Step 4 (highlighted in RED) and then through the seed bead on the circle of seed beads that you exited at the end of the last step (also highlighted in RED):

Step 7: Go through the next seed bead on this circle of seed beads (highlighted in RED):

Step 8: String a seed bead, an 8mm bicone crystal, a seed bead, a 6mm bicone crystal and a seed bead.

Go around and back through the 8mm bicone crystal and the seed bead that you added in Step 6, through the seed bead that you exited at the end of the last step and then through the next seed bead on the circle of seed beads (all beads highlighted in RED):

Step 9: String a seed bead, an 8mm bicone crystal, a seed bead, a 6mm bicone crystal and a seed bead.

Go around and back through the 8mm bicone crystal and the seed bead that you added in the last step, through the seed bead that you exited at the end of the last step and then through the next seed bead on the circle of seed beads (all beads highlighted in RED):

Step 10: String a seed bead, an 8mm bicone crystal, a seed bead, a 6mm bicone crystal and a seed bead.

Go around and back through the 8mm bicone crystal and the seed bead that you added in the last step, through the seed bead that you exited at the end of the last step and then through the next seed bead on the circle of seed beads (all beads highlighted in RED):

Step 11: Repeat Step 10:

Step 12: Repeat Step 10:

Step 13: Go down through the seed bead and 8mm bicone crystal highlighted in RED:

Step 14: String a seed bead, a 6mm bicone crystal and a seed bead.

Go around and across through the 8mm bicone crystal at about 9 o’clock, the three seed beads and the 8mm bicone crystal at about 7 o’clock (all beads highlighted in RED):

Step 15: Go through the seed bead, the 6mm bicone crystal and the seed bead highlighted in RED:

Step 16: String a seed bead.

Go through the seed bead, the 6mm bicone crystal and the seed bead highlighted in RED:

Step 17: String a seed bead.

Go through the seed bead, the 6mm bicone crystal and the seed bead highlighted in RED:

Step 18: Repeat Step 17 the rest of the way around the ornament:

Step 19: Circle round through this outer ring of seed beads and 6mm bicone crystals twice (highlighted in RED):

Step 20: Go back around through the seed beads and 6mm bicone crystals highlighted in RED:

Step 21: String two seed beads, a 6mm bicone crystal and seven seed beads.

Go through the jump ring and then back down through the seven seed beads, the 6mm bicone crystal and the seed bead that you just strung:

Step 22: String a seed bead.

Go back around through the outer ring of seed beads and 6mm bicone crystals highlighted in RED:

Step 23: Go back around through the seed beads and 6mm bicone crystals highlighted in RED and the jump ring:

You may wish to go around through the outer ring of beads and the jump ring again.

Weave your way back into the ornament, knot and cut your thread.

Thread your needle with the tail from Step 1, weave your way into the ornament, knot and cut your thread.

Attach your jump ring to an ornament hook.
