The use of "invisible" threading here really helps to create a true floating design as the threading 'disappears' when worn.
|1) Use beading wire to create
the dangles you want for your design.
Cut appropriate lengths (which will be folded over to create the dangles).
2) Fold a 'dangle-wire' over the main necklace thread. Thread both ends of the dangle-wire through a crimp bead, crush the crimp bead to form a loop.
|3) Thread beads along the dangle wires and finish off with a crimp bead to hold in place. (or see: How to finish with crimp beads if you want a loop at the end. )
|4) Thread beads on both sides of your dangles along your necklace thread and hold in place with crimp beads. (see: Crimp beads to create floating design)
5) Continue in this way to create the sectional floating sections with dangles along your necklace.
6) finish off the piece with a clasp of your choice.
