Instructions

Step 1: Use 5 inches of Amethyst wire to string 1 rondelle and 1 crimp tube. Pass through the tube, forming about a 30mm loop. Use the tail end of wire to string 1 briolette. Pass through the crimp tube again, forming a small 10mm loop of wire below the 30mm loop. Crimp the tube and trim the tail ends of wire (you should have very short tail ends, so you'll only be recycling about 2mm of wire from each tail end.) Click here for crimping instructions.

Step 2: Cut 5 inches of Spinel wire and pass through the rondelle used in the previous step. Repeat Step 1.

Step 3: Repeat Step 2 using Rhodochrosite wire.

Step 4: Repeat Step 2 using Quartz wire.

Step 5: Repeat Step 2 using Garnet wire.

Step 6: Repeat Step 2 using Pink Tourmaline wire.

Step 7: Repeat Steps 1 through 5.

Step 8: Repeat Step 6, omitting stringing the rondelle.

Step 9: Use 1 jump ring to attach one half of the clasp to the Amethyst loop formed in Step 1.

Step 10: Use 1 jump ring to attach one half of the clasp to the Pink Tourmaline loop formed in Step 8.
