Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Begin by making bead links with five 9" pieces of wire. On the first, slide on 3 white agate beads, a crystal spacer, 2 silver lava rock beads,a crystal,3 agate beads, a crystal, 1 lava bead, a crystal, 1 Czech glass rice bead, and 20 blue impression jasper beads. Then, repeat with the other beads in the same order on the other side of the impression jasper beads. Make the other bead links the same way, except with different amounts of the blue impression jasper beads- use 15 on the second link, 12 on the third link, 8 on the fourth link, and 4 on the fifth link.
Step 2:
Make 2 bead links about an inch long with 10 crystals. With jump rings, attach the bead links from step 1 to the crystal links; with the longest link on the loop on the end of the crystal link, the shortest one on the top, and the other 3 links evenly spaced on the crystal link.
Step 3:
Attach a 1" piece of chain to both ends of the crystal link and bring the ends together with a jump ring. Repeat on the other side. Attach a piece of chain to both jump rings- whichever length you'd like. Finish with a lobster clasp.
