This beautiful necklace is perfect for a springtime prom, wedding or any other occasion where you want a delicate, elegant necklace. The real beauty lies in the affordability!

Step one: Cut two lengths of sterling silver open cable chain to approximately 17 inches and two inches respectively. Attach the longer chain to an antique silver plated pewter beaded hook and eye clasp using sterling silver open jump rings. Find the center of the chain and add the two inch length using another jump ring.

Step two: To attach the Toho magatama beads, you will need to slide a silver open jump ring through the hole and link them through the chain. Begin with the dangle and add one crystal colored bead and two colored beads to the bottom loop of the chain. Work your way up the chain, alternate colors but add no more crystal and put at least two beads on each of at least six links. Make this section as full or long as you like.

Step three: As you work out from the center of the necklace, alternate all three colors as you go, making sure to match both sides of the necklace. Attach a bead to every other link of chain until you have 20 beads on each side.
