Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Lay out your design so you can plan where the drops should be attached.
Step 2:
I recommend attaching the crescent first using a jump ring on either side.
Step 3:
Now you can attach the charm drops using a jump ring to one side. Repeat on the other side.
Step 4:
Attach the pendant with one of the charm drops attached to the center of the swag using another jump ring.
  Step 5:
Simply finish off the back of your necklace with a lobster clasp and you are all set!

    love this necklace. It kind of reminds me of tribal.How long is the chain and how far down do you add the crestant componant?

    I really love this design. It’s got crystals–yippee!! And drapeyness (new word?). Pretty chain. Pretty colors. Yep, I love that! I’d also like some info on the lengths you used- amount of chain above the first connection & over all length. It looks very long. My hubby thinks necklaces should sit on the chest I think, because every time I make a longer design, he says he likes it but it seems too long! He’s actually a great help with ideas on color & style❤️

    Ethereal certainly describes this design, Ali. The small components in the design add points of color that work very well with the silver. Love it!

    Thanks to Moogie our jewelry vocabulary has been enriched with the addition of a new word, Drapeyness! Your necklace has excellent drapeyness as well as an ethereal quality. What more could we ask for? :D
