Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Begin with two 12" pieces of chain. Using a headpin, make two bead charms, each with 2 Amazonite beads. With a jump ring, attach them to the bottom of each piece of chain. Make two bead links with 8 Amazonite beads, and attach to the center of each piece of chain.
  Step 2:
Attach a jump ring to both ends of the chain. On each jump ring, attach a 9.5" piece of the bead chain. Bring the bottoms of the bead chain together and attach with a jump ring.
Step 3:
Make a bead link with 3 Amazonite beads and attach to the jump ring at the bottom of the bead chain. Attach the gold hoop to the bottom of the bead link. Finish by dropping the pieces of gold chain through the hoop.

    This almost looks like a faux lariat. What a very nice design idea. I like the link connecting the ring, and how the chain tails with the beaded ends go thru it. I’d love to see the back of the necklace. I noticed the lobster listed in the supplies–do the two strands connect to the closure, or do they loop around some how? I like the dainty feel of the piece.
