String in a random order to approximately 6 ½ inches the following; the multi colored head drilled pearls, the12mm Swarovski light blue pearl, the Swarovski 10mm faceted light sapphire round, the Swarovski 10mm faceted light colorado topaz round and the silver antique Turkish spacers. Crimp the remaining jewelry wire to the jump ring on the other end of the chain.
