Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
To make the focal- use the stainless steel wire to make a bead link with the silver tube. Attach Chrysocolla bead links directly to each side of the tube link. Make another link with the electric blue crystals, with silver spacers and a chrysocolla bead in the middle. Attach to each side of the silver tube with an oval jump ring.
Step 2:
For the rest of the necklace, make bead links attached directly together with the labradorite coins, chrysocolla, magnesite, crystal, silver rondelles, and the silver coins.

    I like this necklace, especially the focal, which a person could adjust to use items from their stash. Nice work!

    I really like this necklace, but I didn’t see a list telling how many of each component is needed. Did I miss it? Thanks!
