Cut the silver wire in 2 lengths of 20 inches and 22 inches. Start working on the longer one first. String on a crystal on to the silver wire, and secure it in place by tightly curling it. Then string a black bead, a large opaque white bead, followed by a black bead, and finish it off with another crystal. The crystal beads should be first as well as last in the stringing order. Repeat this entire procedure to make 5 groups of beads. Make sure the clusters are placed at least an inch apart. Take the shorter 20 inch silver wire, and cluster the beads in the same manner you have done for the longer wire. Hold both wires together and string one black bead through them, and attach lobster clasp, looping the wire back through the black bead, securing it by crimping and trimming the remaining wire end. Do the same for the other side too. The two silver wires should have a symmetrical finish.
You may find crystals which already have a hole in the middle for threading purposes, or you can use crystals which do not have such a hole. First you have to make a knot with the thread. Using the pliers, twist the metal thread so that it loops into the shape of a tear drop, and then use some more thread to loop it around the joint, so as to fix it in place.
Another common element of tribal jewelry was depictions of different gods and deities. Byzantine cross, ankh have all been found in different jewelry pieces too, typically as pendants. Finally, animals and birds were also sometimes represented in jewelry, like deer, eagle, etc.
