Technique

1 Take one eye pin and thread one 10mm Red Jasper bead. Trim the eye pin 1cm from the bead and using your round nose pliers make a loop. Repeat this step twenty-three times so you have in total twenty four beaded-connectors.

2 Take one head pin and thread one bead cap and one Dolomite Marble bead. Trim the head pin 1cm from the bead and using your round nose pliers make a loop. Now take one 6mm jump ring and attach to the top. Repeat this step twenty-one times so you have in total twenty-two beaded-dangles.

3 Take one head pin and thread one 6mm faceted round Czech bead. Trim the head pin 1cm from the bead and using your round nose pliers make a loop. Repeat this step forty-three times so you have in total forty-four beaded-dangles.

4 Take one beaded-connector from step 1 and thread one jump ring. On the jump ring thread one Czech beaded-dangle (step 3), the jump ring connected to the marble beaded-connector (step 2), one more Czech beaded-dangle (step 3) and one new beaded-connector from step 1.

5 Now take one more jump ring and thread the end of the previous beaded-connector and one Czech beaded-dangle (step 3), the jump ring connected to the marble beaded-connector (step 2), one more Czech beaded-dangle (step 3) and one new beaded-connector from step 1. Repeat this step nine times so your necklace strap measures a total of twelve beaded-connectors plus dangles.

6 To make up the second necklace strap repeat step 4 & 5. Using 6mm jump rings attach each necklace strap to the pendant. Take two more 6mm jump rings and attach the clasp & eye to the ends of the necklace.
