4 Make up one of the outside necklace straps by taking 6mm jump rings and joining the beaded-connectors from step three in the following order:
One 3A spindle beaded-connector, one 3B kiwi beaded-connector, one 3J sky beaded-connector, one 3C rhinestone blue beaded-connector, one 3E mixed beaded-connector, one 3I cobalt beaded-connector and one 3D rhinestone turquoise beaded-connector.
Repeat this step so you will have two beaded-straps in total. Using 6mm jump rings attach one beaded-strap to each of the top loops of the cloud connector.

5 Make up the inside beaded necklace by taking 4mm jump rings and joining the beaded-connectors from step three in the following order: Four 3F triple turquoise beaded-connectors, twelve 3G small blue beaded-connectors and four 3F triple turquoise beaded-connectors.

6 Make up one of the end necklace straps by taking 6mm jump rings and joining four 1H turquoise beaded-connector. Repeat this step so you will have two beaded-straps in total.

7 Take one twisted ring and using 6mm jump rings attach to the bottom of the ring one end of the outer necklace strap from step 4 and sitting next to that on the right one end of the inside beaded necklace from step five. On the top of the ring using a 6mm jump ring attach one end necklace strap from step 6.
Repeat this step for the other side of the necklace making sure the inside beaded necklace sits on the left (so it will sit inside the necklace).

Now take one twisted rings and using a 6mm jump ring attach to the other side of the necklace. Using 6mm jump ring attach one more twisted ring and the newly created beaded-dangle.
