Project Instructions

Onto an eyepin slide 1 12mm amethyst faceted round. Make a simple loop. Repeat to make two 12mm amethyst faceted round links. 

Repeat step 1 using 1 12mm turquoise jade faceted round. Repeat for a total of two 12mm turquoise jade faceted links. 

Repeat step 1 using 1 14mm pink dyed agate round. Repeat for a total of two 14mm pink dyed agate round links. 

Repeat step 1 using 1 14x18mm green banded agate cut nugget. Repeat for a total of two 14x18mm green banded agate cut nugget links. 

Open a 7mm gunmetal jump ring. Slide it into 1 hole of an aqua agate slice. Close the jump ring. Open a 9mm gunmetal jump ring. Slide it into the second hole of the aqua agate slice and one hole of an amethyst crystalloid slice. Open a second 9mm gunmetal jump ring. Slide it into the second hole of the crystalloid slice and the silver plated textured rondelle. Close the jump ring. 

Repeat step 5 with two other slice beads and silver plated textured rondelle.
