Repeat steps two times. Set aside.

Step Three: String a turquoise and amethyst with beige pillow bead on a 2-inch antique brass-plated 20 gauge eye pin. Finish with a simple loop. For help with simple loops visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Repeat. Set aside.

Step Three: Attach the antique copper-plated figaro chain to a corner of the antique brass-plated art deco square link using a 4.5mm antique copper-plated open jump ring. For help with jump rings visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. At the opposite corner attach a pillow bead link created during step three using a jump ring. Continue stringing in this order: jump ring, jump ring, jump ring, brass link, jump ring, jump ring, jump ring, pillow link, jump ring, brass link. Attach the other end of the chain to the final brass link.
