Step One: On a 2-inch sterling silver eye pin string the rectangle black onyx fruit pendant by Mucha. Attach the eye pin to the 6mm silver-plated 2-ring channel in siam using a simple loop. For help with simple loops, visit the Handy Tips section of our Learning Center. On the bottom of the eye pin, attach a 6mm silver-plated 1-ring channels in siam using a sterling silver open jump ring. For help with jump rings, visit the Handy Tips section of our Learning Center. Attach a jump ring to the two other 1-ring channels and connect them to the first jump ring.
Step Two: Cut an approximately 4-inch length of silver-plated 4-leaf clover chain, making sure that both ends are a loop. On one end of the chain attach an eye pin using a simple loop. On the eye pin string a Swarovski 6mm faceted round in crystal moonlight, a 4mm bright sterling silver roundel, a Swarovski 8mm faceted bicone in violet, a roundel and a faceted round. Attach the other end of the eye pin to your other length of chain using a simple loop.
Step Three: Attach a jump ring to the free loop of the 2-ring channel on the top of the pendant. Use this jump ring to connect both ends of the chain together.
Step Four: String a Swarovski 4mm faceted round in siam onto a 1-inch sterling silver head pin. Repeat twice. Attach them to the chain approximately halfway between the pendant and the faceted rounds using wrapped loops. For help with wrapped loops, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step Five: String a Swarovski 6mm faceted bicone in rose water opal on a head pin. Repeat. Attach them to the other side of the necklace using a simple loop. Attach the Swarovski 8mm XILION pendant in cyclamen opal to the chain directly below the bicones using a jump ring.
