Free Instructions: Birthstone Crystal Pendant

Learn how to make this super stylish pendant, featuring a sparkling little crystal bicone for a subtle flash of colour. We used a 5mm Preciosa Crystal bicone, choose between our 43 different crystal colours, or learn which is your birthstone for a more personal element, or of course you can choose a bead of your choice. We made our necklace in silver plate, but it would look fabulous in gold plate too! We have listed all the gold plated and silver plated findings below.....
