Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Begin With 8" of the 22g. Gold Artistic Wire. String 6 beads from your Champagne AB Faceted Crystal strand onto the wire. Next, string on one Champagne Quartz drop, one crystal bead, another quartz drop, another crystal bead, a final quartz drop, and then 6 more crystal beads.
Slide a crimp tube on both ends and secure. There should be 3" of wire left on both sides of the beads.
Step 2:
Next, cut a 2' piece of gold chain in half. Attach the ends of the wire to the ends of the chain by wrapping the wire around the chain link.
Step 3:
Cut the chain where you want your Rose Gold Links, and attach them with the jump rings.
Step 4:
String 3 beads from your Strawberry Quartz strand onto the 28g. wire. Cut your chain about 13 links below the Rose Quartz, and attach the wire with the Strawberry Quartz beads to the chain. Next, cut your chain about 8 links above the Rose Quartz. String 2 Strawberry Quartz beads onto the 28g. wire and attach to the ends of the chain. Repeat these same steps on the other side of the necklace.
Step 5:
Using jump rings, attach strands of chain to the bottom wire that's holding the quartz drops.
Using two 5" pieces of rose gold chain on a jump ring, attach them to the wire in the space between the crimp bead and the end of the chain. Repeat on the other side.
Next, put one 4.5" piece of gold chain onto a jump ring, and attach it after the first bead. Repeat on the other side.
Then, put one 4.5" piece of rose gold chain onto a jump ring and attach after the second bead. Repeat on the other side.
Lastly, put two 4" strands of gold chain onto a jump ring and attach after the third bead. Repeat on the other side.

    Bright and cheerful. Love the way you used the shards. I was tempted to buy one of these strands but opted to buy the metallic blue strand. Shards are fun and challenging and I would say you met the challenge very nicely.
