I don't really like the big beads on this, but the construction and crystals and findings make it interesting.  I saw a YouTube demo on the technique, but couldn't remember all the steps, so I made it up as I went along.  

As I did it, the technique is to make a loop on one side of the clasp.  Thread beads on a headpin (I used a crystal, a rondel, a big bead, and a bead cap on each pin).  Thread the headpin through the loop on the clasp, add another bead, then make a loop.  Bead another pin, put it through the new loop, add a bead and make a loop.  Continue until done.

This is supposed to work for a necklace, too, but seems stiff.  Maybe if you left off the second large bead, it would be more flexible, but also shorter.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I've never seen that technique before.  Neat.

Thanks.  I'm having issues taking and uploading pix, it does look better in person.
