DIRECTIONS:

1. Cut the beading wire into four pieces: one 16' piece, two 6' pieces and one 8' piece.
2. Use 1 head pin to string 1 gold rondelle, 1 light sapphire cut bead, and 1 gold rondelle; form a simple loop. Repeat to form 2 A dangles. Use 1 head pin to string 1 gold rondelle, 2 light sapphire cut beads, and 1 gold rondelle; form a simple loop. Repeat to form 2 B dangles. Use 1 head pin to string 1 gold rondelle, 3 aqua cut beads, and 1 gold rondelle; form a simple loop to create 1 C dangle. Attach 1 split ring to the simple loop on 1 dangle. Repeat four times to attach split rings to the remaining four dangles. Set aside.
3. Cut the head off one head pin; form a simple loop. String 1 blue aventurine round, 2 gold rondelles, and 1 blue aventurine round; form a simple loop. Repeat the entire step to create a second beaded link.
4. Attach 2 split rings to one half of the clasp. Repeat for the other half of the clasp.
5. Use one 6' wire to string 1 crimp bead and 1 of the attached split rings. Pass back through the crimp bead and flatten. String 2 blue aventurine rounds, 26 gold rondelles, 1 crimp bead, and 1 split ring. Pass back through the crimp bead and flatten.
6. Use the 8' piece of wire to string 1 crimp bead and the previous split ring. Pass back through the crimp bead and flatten. String 20 sapphire rounds, 1 crimp bead, and 1 split ring. Pass back through the crimp bead and flatten. Repeat Step 5, reversing the stringing sequence and attaching the end of the wire to 1 split ring on the other half of the clasp.
7. Attach 1 beaded link to the other split ring attached to half of the clasp. Attach 1 split ring to the other end of the beaded link. Use the 16' wire to string 1 crimp bead and the previous split ring. Pass back through the crimp bead and flatten. String 18 blue aventurine rounds, 2 gold rondelles, 4 aqua cut beads, 1 gold rondelle, 1 light sapphire cut bead, 1 gold rondelle, 1 A dangle, 1 light sapphire cut bead, 1 gold rondelle, 1 B dangle, and 1 light sapphire cut bead.
