Technique

1 Create the following beaded-connectors:
A: Eight round beaded-connectors: One 8mm round Howlite cream bead, one 4x6mm black crystal rondelle bead and one 8mm round Howlite cream bead
B: Eight rondelle beaded connectors: Two 8x5mm rondelle Howlite cream beads
C: Two mix beaded-connectors: One 4x6mm black crystal rondelle and one 8mm purple & white Mosaic bead

Note: Beaded-connectors are created by threading the bead or sequence of beads on an eye pin, then finishing the eye pin with a round loop.

2 Create the following beaded-dangles:
A: Three tear drop beaded-dangle: One purple & white Mosaic tear drop bead
B: Two long beaded-dangles: Two 8mm purple & white Mosaic beads

Note: Beaded-dangles are created by threading the bead or sequence of beads on a head pin, then either finishing the head pin with a wrapped loop or a round loop.

3 Take one eye pin and thread one 8mm purple & white Mosaic bead. Trim eye pin 1cm from the bead and start to form a loop before closing the loop thread the top loop of one 2A tear drop beaded-dangle

4 Using 6mm jump rings attach the following combinations to the bottom loops of the moon pendant working left to right
First & second hole: One black tassel
Third hole: One 2B long beaded-dangle
Forth & fifth hole: One purple tassel
Sixth hole: One 2b long beaded-dangle
Seventh hole: Beaded combination from step 3
Eight hole: One 2b long beaded-dangle
Ninth & tenth hole: One purple tassel
Eleventh hole: One 2B long beaded-dangle
Twelve hole: One black tassel & flower charm
Thirteen hole: One black tassel

5. Create one of the necklace strap by using 6mm jump rings to join beaded-connectors from step 1 in the following order:
One 1C mix beaded-connector, [one 1A round beaded-connector,
one 1B rondelle beaded connector] x 4
Note Brackets [ ] are also used to enclose a sequence of beaded-connectors that are to be repeated a specified number of times.

Repeat this step for the second necklace

6. Using 6mm jump rings attach one necklace straps to each side of moon connector. Take one 6mm jump ring and attach the clasp to one side of the necklace. Take one new 6mm jump ring and attach the 8mm twisted close ring to the other side of the necklace. Now take one more 6mm jump ring and attach the previous twisted ring and one new twisted ring. Take one head pin and thread one 4x6mm black rondelle bead. Trim 1cm from the bead and start to form a loop. Before closing the loop attach to the last twisted ring.
