Purple & Copper Illusion Necklace

I love illusion necklaces. They can dress up any outfit, and be as fancy or as casual as you want. I'm imagining this necklace with jeans and a warm fall sweater. The coppery and wine- purple tones remind me of autumn colors. 
Materials: Microfilament beading cord, clasp, purple bicones- 4mm, copper beads with purple accents, 2mm crimp beads, crimping pliers,and  scissors. The beads came from Michaels. 
Cut three lengths of the cord, one 30", one 33", and one 36". Thread the crimp bead, the clasp, and back through the crimp bead, then crush the bead with your pliers. Repeat with the other two pieces of cord. 
Thread a crimp bead, a crystal, and another crimp bead. Crimp the crimp beads. 
Repeat with the rest of the beads. 
Attach the second half of the clasp the same way as the first half. 
Repeat with the other two strands.  

Enjoy your new necklace! Look at those floating beads!
Xoxo, Alyssa
