Frosted Crystal Necklace

By: Catherine Fox

This winter, let your jewelry complement the outdoors with a beautiful frosted crystal necklace! Use our beaded necklace patterns and this easy video tutorial to learn how to make your own.


  • 8mm clear round glass beads
  • 8mm clear faceted glass beads
  • 6mm matte white faceted glass beads
  • Crimp covers
  • Crimp beads
  • A spring ring clasp
  • .019” diameter beading wire, preferably silvery white
  • Wire cutters
  • Crimping pliers
  • Long-nose pliers
  • A ruler


  1. Measure and cut your beading wire. The length should be two times the length of your desired finished length plus 4”.
  2. Close the loop on your spring ring clasp.
  3. Thread your beading wire through the clasp loop and center the clasp on the beading wire. String a crimp bead on both wires and crimp it near the clasp.
  4. String three random beads on one strand of wire and two random beads on the other strand. String a crimp bead on both wires and crimp it about 2” from your first crimp bead.
  5. String two random beads on one strand of wire and one bead on the other strand. String a crimp bead on both wires and crimp it about 1-1/2” from your last crimp bead.
  6. Continue this bead design and crimping until you have reached your desired length.
  7. Before you crimp your last crimp bead, string on the other half of your clasp and thread the wire ends back through the crimp bead, forming a loop. Crimp the crimp bead in place and trim the wire ends. Attach your crimp covers and close them securely.

This is a very pretty little frosted crystal necklace to wear for everyday wear. It looks like it would be a lot harder to make than it is after watching this video. It was very well done and very informative. I like the white crystal beads but I can see it done out of red or green crystal beads for Christmas or even two different colors or a pretty ice blue. A great necklace for a gift for a special friend or family member for any occasion.

absolutely fantastic! loved the way the video was made as well! very professional!!!

Excellent video...great idea and I can make them while camping or just sitting outside enjoying the weather. Thank you!

Love this!!! Can't wait to make several necklaces like this for gifts, using the favorite color of the person I am making it for.

Awesome Your video explained every detail.....I can't wait to get started. Everyone look out I have a new type of craft to do

Now I know how to do this type of necklace. I always thought it was too difficult to make. I am going to enjoy making these and others for myself and as gifts for family and friends. :)"
