Step By Step Instructions
  1. String the lower tier of the necklace: Place a bead stopper (or tape) on one end of the Softflex beading wire. Following the website picture, string a squarish 4mm turquoise (Magnesite) bead, a silver-plated faceted 4mm bead, a 4mm turquoise bead, a 10mm Pewter Artistic Sun Coin, a 6mm round turquoise (Variscite jasper) bead, a silver daisy spacer, an 8mm round turquoise bead, a 10mm Artistic Sun Coin, an 8mm round turquoise bead, a silver daisy spacer, a 10mm round turquoise bead, an 10mm pewter Artistic Sun Coin, an 8mm round turquoise bead, a silver daisy spacer, a 10mm turquoise round bead, an 18mm pewter Artistic Sun Coin, a 10mm round turquoise bead, a silver daisy spacer, an 8mm turquoise round bead, a 10mm pewter Artistic Sun Coin bead, an 8mm turquoise bead, a daisy spacer, a 6mm turquoise round bead,a 10mm Coin bead, a squarish turquoise bead, a silver plated faceted 4mm bead, a squarish turquoise round bead.  Place a bead stopper or piece of tape on the other end.
  2. String the upper tier: Make 15 of these units: on an eyepin, place a daisy beadcap, a squarish turquoise Magnesite bead, and another daisy beadcap. Make a simple loop on the other end.  Connect 9 of these units into a chain. Set aside the other 6 of these units.
  3. Connect the necklace tiers: The circular part of the toggle clasps each have a small loop.  a) Attach each end of the chain unit you made in Step 3 to the small loop on a clasp. b) On one end of the lower tier necklace, remove a stop bead, string on a crimp bead, weave wire through the small loop on the clasp,and back through the crimp.  Crimp the crimp bed.  c) On the other end of the lower tier necklace, repeat step 4b. Note:  Make sure the lower tier necklace attaches below the upper tier necklace onto the clasp loop. 
  4. Connect the embellished chain to the toggle bar:  You do not need to cut the chain; the links can be opened and closed like a jumpring.(No waste!)  The embellished part of the chain consists of a Step 3 unit, 6 chain links, a Step 3 unit, 6 chain links, and another Step 3 unit for each side of the necklace.  One end of the assembly attaches to the small loop at the end of the toggle bar; the other end attaches to the remaining chain, which then attaches to the other toggle bar. Adjust the length of the necklace as desired, by decreasing several links in the chain at the back of the necklace.


CONGRATULATIONS!  You can now wear your necklace --- to praise! -- or give to someone special.
