Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Begin with two 14" pieces of the stringing wire. Slide a white mosaic shell bead, a gold spacer, the Tibetan focal, another spacer, and another white shell bead onto both pieces of wire. Place a drop of glue at the bottom of the white shell bead and let it dry completely. Slide the beads onto each side of the necklace in the order shown in the picture.
Step 2:
Make a loop on each end and secure with a crimp tube.

    I love this but would like it better with a different pendant. Maybe white agate or one of red jaspers.

    I have that Tibetan bead but with a tassel at the end. This is another lovely design from you.

    I meant to say I’d add a tassel to the focal. jlw
