    I love this…I would like to make one as I love the style, but don’t know how to do the cluster effect, sigh.

    Beadinggma, Start with a nice chain. Each link in this is 6mmx5mm. Wire wrap three to four pearls/crystals per link onto the chain using a long headpin. You will want to put more in middle. It looks hard but it mainly is just work. It took a good part of a night to complete. Thank you all for the positive feed back.

    Very pretty pearls! I made a necklace like this one a couple years ago and had wire wrapped over 300 pearls and bicones! I know how much work went into this design.
