Attach longest piece of chain to eye pin alternating with a crystal and then a chain until you have attached five crystals and six lengths of chain from longest to shortest. Repeat on other side making sure chains are straight.
Attach 5½" lengths of chain to the outside loops of eye pins on each side. Connect one end of both chains to your 6mm jump ring and the other two ends to a lobster claw with the 4mm jump ring.
Use head pins to make all of your dangles. String a bicone onto a head pin then trim to ¼". Bend pin close to crystal and make a loop with needle nose pliers.
Attach the dangles to necklace. Begin with the center link of each chain and work up evenly on both sides attaching on every other link. Start with your lightest crystals at the top and finish with the darkest crystals at the bottom to produce the ombre effect.
