Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Make a bead link with the wire by stringing on 5 blue opal beads, 2 quartz points, and then 5 more beads. Wrap the ends of the wire link 3 times around the center of the metal focal.
  Step 2:
Take 21" of chain and cut it in half. Attach the bottoms of the two pieces of chain together using a 4mm or 5mm jump ring. Attach the metal focal to the larger jump ring with a 3mm jump ring.
Step 3:
Make two bead links, each with 7 blue opal beads. Move up the chain 2" from the bottom and attach the links with jump rings on both sides of the chain. Finish the necklace with a lobster clasp.
