Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Begin with two 5" pieces of wire. Make a bead link by stringing on 1 Larimar bead, 1 spacer bead, 1 spike, and 1 spacer. Continue with this pattern until you have 11 Larimar beads (or whichever length you like).
Step 2:
Attach the wire to two 6" pieces of chain.
  Step 3:
Attach the other ends of the wire bead link to a jump ring. Attach the two metal focals to another jump ring (the small one on top of the larger one). Attach that jump ring to the one holding the wire links together.
Step 4:
Make a small bead link with 3 Larimar beads & 4 spacers. Attach the link to the jump ring that's holding the metal focals.
Finish the necklace by attaching a lobster clasp and jump ring.
