A simple basic link was just the ticket for this necklace so the colorful crystal dangles would really pop and be the center focus. It's a fun necklace to create and you could easily make a matching bracelet. Try adding the dangles to the connector loop instead of the wire center for a totally different look.

Instructions
Step 1
Cut about twenty 1.5" wire pieces. Adapt the number of pieces to your desired necklace length.

Step 2
Form a loop at one wire end. Form a loop on the other wire end twisted sideways.

Step 3
Form each wire into a half moon shape by curving around the barrel pliers.

Step 4
Connect the links together by opening a loop, inserting another loop and closing the loop. Repeat until all loops have been linked. I made the sample long enough to slip over my head but you can use a toggle or clasp if desired. Simply attach to one necklace end with a jump ring.

Step 5
Make 3 crystal dangles by adding crystals onto a headpin and making a simple loop at the top
(see DIY here: https://www.wirejewelry.com/jewelry_making_tips_techniques/Two-Ways-to-Make-Simple-Loops_648.html).
