Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Take two 10' pieces of cord and tie them together in the middle with an overhand double knot, so on each side of the knot there will be two strands of thread.
Step 2:
On one side, string on 33 clear beads, 1 silver bead, 13 mint beads, 1 silver bead, and 6 more clear beads- tying a triple knot in between each clear bead, and a double knot in between each lava bead. The two stands of cord will fit easily into the hole of the clear beads, however you will need to use the beading needle to string on the lava rock.
Step 3:
Repeat the same steps on the other side. there should be 108 beads total.
Tie both ends to the top of the quartz link, and secure with a small drop of glue. Using a jump ring, attach the tassel to the bottom of the quartz link.

    This is very pretty. I like the spring shades in the tassel. And the matching beads in the necklace.

    I found the double cord very difficult to get through the clear beads, Not sure what your secret is based on the comment the cords slide through easily. Please share LOL
