Project Instructions

Step 1 Slide a 6mm faceted blue iris round onto an eye pin. Make a simple loop.
 

Step 2 Repeat Step 1 with remaining 6mm faceted blue iris rounds, one 3mm faceted blue iris round, all 7mm faceted blue iris bicones, all 8mm blue iris rounds, and all 18mm faceted blue iris lentils.
 

Step 3 Make a chain connecting the links to create the inside chain: one 6mm faceted blue iris round, one 7mm faceted blue iris bicone, one 6mm faceted blue iris round, one 7mm faceted blue iris bicone, and one 6mm faceted blue iris round.
 

Step 4 Repeat Step 3 to make a second inside chain.
 

Step 5 Make a chain connecting the links to create the middle chain: one 6mm faceted blue iris round, one 7mm faceted blue iris bicone, one 6mm faceted blue iris round, one 7mm faceted blue iris bicone, one 6mm faceted blue iris round, one 7mm faceted blue iris bicone, and one 6mm faceted blue iris round.
 

Step 6 Repeat Step 5 to make a second middle chain.
 

Step 7 Make a chain connecting the links to create the outside chain: one 6mm faceted blue iris round, one 7mm faceted blue iris bicone, one 6mm faceted blue iris round, one 7mm faceted blue iris bicone, one 6mm faceted blue iris round, one 7mm faceted blue iris bicone, and one 6mm faceted blue iris round, one 7mm faceted blue iris bicone, and one 6mm faceted blue iris round.
 

Step 8 Repeat Step 7 to make a second outside chain.
 

Step 9 Make a chain connecting the links to create the large chain: one 18mm faceted blue iris lentil, one 8mm blue iris round, one 18mm faceted blue iris lentil, one 8mm blue iris round, one 18mm faceted blue iris lentil, one 8mm blue iris round, one 18mm faceted blue iris lentil, and an 8mm blue iris round.
 

Step 10 Repeat Step 9 to create a second large chain.
 

Step 11 Open a jump ring and slide it through a hole in the first blue and crystal flower slider. Slide one length of inside chain onto the jump ring and close the jump ring. Repeat on the other side of the flower slider, but about one third of the way around the flower from the first link.
 

Step 12 Open a jump ring and slide it through a hole in the second blue and crystal flower slider. Slide one length of inside chain onto the jump ring and close the jump ring. Repeat on the other side of the flower slider, but about one third of the way around the flower from the first link.
 

Step 13 Open a jump ring and slide it through a hole in the third blue and crystal flower slider. Slide one length of inside chain onto the jump ring and close the jump ring. Repeat on the other side of the flower slider, but about one third of the way around the flower from the first link.
 

Step 14 At the opposite end of the inside, middle, and outside chains, use a jump ring to attach the chains in that order to a large jump ring.
 

Step 15 Repeat Step 14 with second jump ring on the other side of the necklace.
 

Step 16 Connect one length of large chain to the large jump ring so that the 18mm faceted blue iris lentil is the first link next to the large jump ring. Repeat on second side of necklace.
 

Step 17 Open a jump ring. Use it to attach the 3mm faceted blue iris round to the clasp end of the large chain. Use the opposite loop of the 3mm faceted blue iris round to link to the bar of the toggle clasp.
 

Step 18 Open the final jump ring and slide onto it the other end of the large chain and the ring of the toggle clasp. Close the jump ring
