Technique

STEP 1 Divide the chain into two 10cm sections.

STEP 2 Take nine jump rings, nine tassels and the large tear connector. Now thread a jump ring through the top of each of the tassels and attach to a separate bottom loop on the large tear connector. Take one eye pin and thread one 10mm Howlite bead, the top loop of the tear connector and one 10mm Howlite bead. Trim 1cm from the last bead and form a loop.

STEP 3 Create the following beaded-connectors
A: Six large double beaded-connectors: One 10mm Howlite bead, one 8mm daisy spacer and one 10mm Howlite bead.
B: Four medium double beaded-connectors: One 8mm Howlite bead, one 4mm daisy spacer and one 8mm Howlite bead.
C: Sixteen single beaded-connectors: One 8mm Howlite bead
D: One four crystal beaded-connector: Four 4x6mm crystal rondelle beads
E: Four triple crystal beaded-connectors: Three 4x6mm crystal rondelle beads
F: Two double crystal beaded-connectors: Two 4x6mm crystal rondelle beads

NOTE: Beaded-connectors are created by threading the bead or sequence of beads on a eye pin, then trimming the eye pin 1cm from the last bead. Then take your round-nose pliers and form a loop on the end.

STEP 4 Create the middle necklace tier using 6mm jump rings to join up
beaded-connectors from step 3 and chain from step 1 in the following order: One 10cm section of chain (step 1), one double crystal beaded-connector (step 3F), one single beaded-connector (step 3C), one triple crystal beaded-connector (step 3E), one single beaded-connector, one triple crystal beaded-connector, one single beaded-connector, one four crystal beaded-connector (step 3D), one single beaded-connector, one triple crystal beaded-connector, one single beaded-connector, one triple crystal beaded-connector, one single beaded-connector, one double crystal beaded-connector and one 10cm section of chain.

STEP 4 Create the outer necklace tear using 6mm jump rings to join up
beaded-connectors from step 3 and focal pendant from step 2 in the following order: Five single beaded-connectors (step 3C), two medium double beaded-connectors (step 3B), three large double beaded-connectors (step 3a), the centre pendant (step 2), three large double beaded-connectors, two medium double beaded-connectors and five single beaded-connectors.

STEP 5 Take one 6mm jump ring and thread one end of each of the necklace tiers from step 4 and 5. Take another 6mm jump ring and thread the other side of each of the necklace tiers. Take one more 6mm jump ring and thread the jump ring at the end of one necklace and attach a clasp. Take the last 6mm jump ring and thread the other side of the necklace and attach the 8mm twisted ring.
