Technique

1 Take one tassel and carefully remove the bronze jump ring. Now replace the bronze jump ring with the 8mm silver one but before closing attach to the bottom holes of the moon connector. Repeat this step two more times attaching the tassels to the bottom of the black moon.
2. Take one eye pin and thread four cube beads. Trim the pin 1cm from the last bead and using your round-pliers create a loop. Check to make sure the loops of your newly created beaded-connector are in the same direction or your necklace will not sit properly. Repeat this step fifty-five times so you have a total of fifty six beaded-connectors.
3. Take one eye pin and thread one Kashmiri style bead. Create a beaded-connector as in step 2. Repeat this step for the other eleven kashmiri style beads.

4. Start creating the one of the necklace straps by taking one 10mm jump ring and thread one silver Kashmir beaded-connector from step three and two cube beaded-connectors from step 2. *Now take another 10mm jump ring and thread the other side of the two cube beaded-connectors and one new Kashmiri beaded-connector. Take one more 10mm jump ring and thread the previous Kashmiri beaded-connector and two new cube beaded-connectors**

Repeat from * to ** four times using the picture as a guide to the which Kashmiri style bead to place.

Finish by taking one more 10mm jump ring and threading the other side of the last two cube beaded-connectors and two new cube beaded-connectors. Now take one 10mm jump ring and thread the end of last cube beaded-connectors

Repeat this step for the second necklace strap.
5. Take two 6mm jump rings and using one jump ring each necklace strap attach the straps to both sides of the moon-connector. Now take one 6mm jump ring and attach a clasp to end of one side of the necklace. Take two 10mm jump rings and join them up to create a jump-ring chain and attach to the other side of the necklace.
