Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Using four 1.5" pieces of wire, make four bead links. String on a 3mm crystal bead and a teardrop. Alternate until you have 6 teardrops & 7 crystals.
Step 2:
Take 2' of chain (or whichever length you'd like the necklace to be), and attach a bead link to the ends of the chain using a jump ring. Move up 5 chain links and attach another bead link. Repeat this with the rest of the bead links.
Step 3:
Make 8 bead links with the 3mm crystal- you can make these as long or short as you'd like- I made mine using 3-5 crystals per link. Using jump rings, attach the crystal links along the chain. Finish by attaching a jump ring & lobster clasp to the ends.

    Elaina, I’ve always enjoyed wearing ladder necklaces, and I really like your piece made with the new Czech teardrops. The subtle cool colors look great with the silver chain. :)
