Pearl and Crystal Crocheted Necklace

This delicate necklace will be sure to please, with the tiny glimmering crystals and brightly colored pearls. 
Materials: 28 gauge wire, crochet hook, 4mm pearls, 4mm crystals, bead cones, eyepins, jump rings, clasp, wire cutters, bent nose pliers, and round nose pliers. 
Thread about 15 beads onto the wire. 
Make a slip knot, and ch3. Add a bead, and ch 5. Continue chaining and adding beads until about 18". 
When you have enough beads, pull the wire through to fasten off. 
Make six more strands. For some of them, I chained 3 between each bead for variation. 
Gather the strands together, and twist tightly at the top. 
Trim the ends off, make a loop, and wrap the end around it to secure it. 
Attach the headpin to the loop, and put the bead cone on. Bend the eyepin, trim the excess, and form a loop. Attach a clasp with a jump ring. 
Repeat on the other side. 
All finished!
I hope you enjoy this dainty necklace!
Xoxo, Alyssa
