3 To make up the necklace strap you are going to use 6mm jump rings to join up the beaded-connectors from step one. Note some 6mm jump rings will also have some beaded-dangles from step 2 hanging off them use the pictures as a guide.

Finish by taking one 6mm jump ring and attaching to the bottom of the beaded-strap.

B: To make up the right necklace strap use 6mm jump rings join the components in the following order: One 1A grey pearl beaded-connector, one 1D large pearl beaded-connector (before closing the jump ring add one 2A small pearl beaded-dangle & 2B small black beaded-dangle), one 1F long zebra beaded-connector, one 1A grey pearl beaded-connector one 1E large crystal connector (before closing the jump ring add one 2A small pearl beaded-dangle & 2B small black beaded-dangle), one 1F long zebra beaded-connector, one 1A grey pearl beaded-connector one 1D large pearl beaded-connector (before closing the jump ring add one 2A small pearl beaded-dangle & small 2B black beaded-dangle), one filigree diamond connector, one 1B black beaded-connector, one filigree diamond connector, one 1B black beaded-connector, one filigree diamond connector, two 1C single zebra beaded-connector and three 9mm twisted rings.

4 Take one eye pin and thread one 3mm spacer bead, one 6mm rhinestone rondelle, one bead cap, one 12x16mm rondelle bead and one bead cap. Finish the beaded-connector with a loop (Pic. 4A). Now take one jump ring and thread one 2D large black beaded-dangle and one 2Asmall pearl beaded-dangle (Pic. 4B). Now take one more 6mm jump ring and thread the top of the filigree heat focal pendant, the top of the previous jump ring with the attached beaded-dangle, the remaining beaded-dangles** from step 2 and the bottom of the newly created beaded-connector (Pic. 4C). Take one more 6mm jump ring and thread the top of the newly created beaded-connector and the jump rings attached to the bottom of two necklace straps (Pic. 4D).

** The remaining beaded-dangles should be one 2A small pearl beaded-dangle, one 2B small black beaded-dangle and one 2C large pearl beaded-dangle
