Continue with five Peacock nugget pearls, an olivine CZ rectangle, five more nugget pearls, three wasabi pearls, another purple velvet cube, three wasabi pearls, one opaque green roundelle, three dark purple CZ pears, another opaque green roundelle, three wasabi pearls, an opaque green roundelle and three dark purple CZ pears.

Step three: Reverse this pattern starting with the opaque green roundelle, and work your way toward the side of the necklace without the clasp.
