Technique

1 Create the following beaded-connectors using the medium eye pin:
A: Two rondelle beaded-connector: One 9x6mm Czech glass rondelle bead, one 10mm Red Jasper bead & one 9x6mm Czech glass rondelle bead

B: Two Red Jasper beaded-connectors: One 10mm round Red Jasper bead

C: Four Tiger Eye beaded-connectors: One 8mm Tiger Eye round bead, one saucer spacer bead and one 8mm Tiger Eye round bead

D: Two spindle beaded-connectors: One 20x9mm Czech spindle bead
Four

E: Two long Turquoise beaded-connectors: One 8mm round Turquoise bead, one saucer spacer bead and one 8mm round Turquoise bead

Create the following beaded-connectors using the small eye pin:
F: Four turquoise beaded-connectors: One 8mm round Turquoise bead

G: Two flower beaded-connectors: One 9mm Czech Hibiscus bead

Note: Beaded-connectors are created by threading the bead or sequence of beads on an eye pin and finishing the eye pin with a loop.
2 Make up one of the outside necklace straps by taking 6mm jump rings andjoining the beaded-connectors from step one in the following order:
One 1A rondelle beaded-connector, one 1B Red Jasper beaded-connector, one 1G flower beaded-connector, one 1C Tiger Eye beaded-connector, one 1D spindle beaded-connector, one 1C Tiger Eye beaded-connector, one 1F turquoise beaded-connector, one 1E long Turquoise beaded-connector, one 1F turquoise beaded-connector and one clasp.

Repeat this step so you will have two beaded-straps in total but instead of adding the clasp add a twisted ring.

3 Make up the centre focal by taking one medium eye pin and threading one 9x6mm Czech glass rondelle bead, the top loop of the pendant and 9x6mm Czech glass rondelle bead. Finish eye pin with a loop.

Finish by taking two 6mm jump rings and attaching one beaded strap from step 2 on each side of the newly created beaded-connector.

Making up the earrings
1 Take one eye pin and thread one 9x6mm Czech glass rondelle bead, one saucer spacer bead and one 6mm Tiger Eye round bead. Either finish the eye pin with a wrapped loop or round loop. But either way you choose to finish the eye pin before closing the loop thread the bottom loop of the kidney ear wire.

2 Take one 4mm jump ring and thread the bottom loop of the connector and the attach the charm.

3 Repeat steps 1 & 2 to make up the second earring.
