Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Make a bead link with four of the crystal points. Make two more bead links with 5 of the 3mm crystals on each.
Step 2:
On each side of the link with the crystal points, attach a 1" piece of gold chain. At the ends of the chain, attach the other links on each side.
  Step 3:
To the top of the bead links, attach a 2.5" piece of gold chain to both sides. Attach a jump ring to the ends of the chain, and slide on a 5" piece of bead chain to both sides. Attach a piece of gold chain to the ends of the bead chain- whichever length you choose.
Step 4:
At the center of the gold chain, attach a piece of the bead chain that's 3 links long to both sides of the chain. Attach a jump ring to the ends, and attach the starfish charm to both jump rings.
