Step 1 To make the necklace base:

C. Repeat Step 1-A using two “R” beads and gold tone large jump rings. Each set will be called Gold Donut 1-2.

D. Connect the following bead donuts using one large copper jump ring for each connection in the sequence below. This will be called bead donut strand throughout the instructions. Set aside.

E. Cut one strand each of “E” chain to lengths 15", 15½" and 16". Set aside.

Step 2 To make colored charms to add to your necklace base:
