Step 1: Pick up fifteen 3mm crystals and tie them into a bead circle (measure around your largest crystal bead you have and make sure there's some space - you may need more beads than 15 depending on your bead size)
Step 2: Using a new thread, string on six or more bead for the loop of the pendant where your chain necklace can string through, balance out both end of the thread through the biggest crystal and back through the bottom 4 crystal beads on each side as shown in the picture.
Step 3: Take one end of the thread and add one long bugle, followed by 3 small crystal beads and one more long bugle, now you have to loop the thread back through the bead (from the first bead ring from step 1) followed by the new added beads again and through (the next crystal bead on the bead ring from step 1).  Add one long bugle followed by 3 small crystal beads, loop the thread back through the long bugle from the top and (back through the bottom of the bead ring from step 1).

Repeat this for both side.
Step 4: Now start to add 3 small crystal beads followed by the 4, 5, 6, 7 mm crystal beads, end off by adding one more small crystal bead and tie off.

Use this beaded dragonfly as a pendant or hang the beaded dragonfly on your bag or phone as an accessory.
