Project Instructions

Cut two 1" lengths of chain. Set aside for now.

Cut two 12" pieces of beading wire. Use a crimp to attach each wire to one half of the toggle clasp.

Thread onto each strand: 4mm bicone col. Topaz, 6mm bicone Jonquil, 8mm round col. Topaz, 6mm bicone Jonquil, 4mm bicone col. Topaz, 3mm round silver, 4mm bicone peach, global crystal, 4mm bicone peach, round silver,  4mm bicone col. Topaz, 6mm bicone Jonquil, 8mm round col. Topaz, 6mm bicone Jonquil, 4mm bicone col. Topaz, round silver, 6mm bicone Indico, round silver, 4mm bicone Erinite, 8mm round Aqua, 4mm bicone Erinite, round silver, 4mm bicone Indico, oval crystal, 4mm bicone Indico, round silver, 4mm bicone Erinite, 8mm round Aqua, 4mm bicone Erinite, round silver, 4mm bicone Indico, round silver, 4mm bicone light Sapphire, oval crystal, 4mm bicone light Sapphire, round silver, 6mm cube light Sapphire, round silver, global crystal, round silver, 6mm cube light Sapphire, round silver, 4mm bicone light Sapphire, oval crystal and a 4mm bicone light sapphire.

Finish each strand by using a crimp bead to attach it to the last link of a 1" chain.

Cut a 4" (26 link) length of chain. Use a jump ring at the ends of the 1" chains to attach it to the top link of the 4" chain, this forms the basic “Y” section of the necklace.

Create the dangles for the 1" side chains. Make two of each of the following dangles. Thread a round silver, a 4mm bicone light Sapphire, and a round silver bead onto a head pin and finish with a wrapped loop. Thread an 8mm round dark Sapphire and a round silver bead onto a head pin and finish with a wrapped loop. Thread a 4mm bicone dark sapphire, a jump ring, a cube, a jump ring and a 4mm bicone light sapphire onto a head pin and finish with a wrapped loop.  Use a jump ring to attach the dangles to the 1" chains in the same order as they were created starting with the first link (next to the crimped side) and placing a charm on every other link until they are all used.  See photo for reference.

The first link of the 4" length is bare, the second link down will have a dangle on both sides of it. From then on every link has a single dangle hanging from it and you should alternate which side you hang the dangles from as you go down. Attach the dangles using a jump ring and follow the order they are created in. Thread a 4mm bicone light sapphire, jump ring, 4mm bicone dark sapphire, jump ring and a 4mm bicone light sapphire onto a head pin and finish with a wrapped loop. Thread a 4mm bicone dark sapphire, 8mm round dark sapphire and a 4mm bicone dark sapphire onto a head pin and finish with a wrapped loop. Thread a 4mm bicone Indico, a jump ring and an 8mm round Dark Sapphire onto a head pin and finish with a wrapped loop. Thread a 4mm bicone light sapphire, a wheel spacer, a 6mm bicone Indico, a wheel spacer and a 4mm bicone dark Sapphire onto a head pin and finish with a wrapped loop.
