Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Gather your 5 components.
Step 2:
Open one side of the connector just large enough to fit the large ring on. Slide on ring and close with pliers. Attach smaller ring the same way.
Step 3:
String ribbon on top of the large ring through the connector.
Step 4:
Take 2' of Irish waxed linen and wrap around the ribbon at the connector to keep the focal in place. Secure with a couple overhand knots.
Step 5:
Embellish the ribbon with a few quick knots on either side.

    I also can’t find the ring connector on tour site and have an idea to add other components. Do you answer the questions in the comments? Very frustrating.
