EDITOR'S NOTE: It's easy to create the crystal units using flat beads instead of links. Weave the initial round using 20 2 mm rounds, and eliminate adding the links. Work the rest of the circle as before, and add side loops and twists. With one of the tails, weave back to exit a 2 mm in the center, in line with the side loops. Pick up a 20 mm flat round bead, and sew through the 2 mm directly across from where you exited, and back through the bead. Sew through the 2 mm you exited again, and retrace the thread path through the center bead several times to secure. End the threads. - Lesley
