To Create Necklace Strands:

Step 3: Strand #1: Using one piece of wire slide on one crimp bead and one Flora Ring and crimp to close. Attach crimp cover. Slide on five 5328 4mm light Colorado topaz shimmer bicones, one 5000 8mm light Colorado topaz shimmer bead, three 5328 6mm light Colorado topaz shimmer bicones, and one 5000 8mm light Colorado topaz shimmer bead. Repeat this pattern 4 more times and end the strand with five 5328 4mm light Colorado topaz shimmer bicones. Close off the end with a piece of scotch tape.

Step 4: Strand #2: Using one piece of wire slide on one crimp bead and the same Flora Ring and crimp to close next to the first strand. Attach crimp cover. Slide on five 5328 4mm Erinite shimmer bicones and five 5328 6mm Erinite shimmer bicones. Repeat this pattern 4 more times and end the strand with five 5328 4mm Erinite shimmer bicones. Close off the end with a piece of scotch tape.

Step 5: Strand #3: Using one piece of wire slide on one crimp bead and the same Flora Ring and crimp to close next to the first strand. Attach crimp cover. Slide on five 5328 4mm black diamond shimmer bicones, one 5000 8mm black diamond shimmer bead, three 5328 6mm black diamond shimmer bicones, and one 5000 8mm black diamond shimmer bead. Repeat this pattern 4 more times and end the strand with five 5328 4mm black diamond shimmer bicones. Close off the end with a piece of scotch tape.

Step 6: Begin to make a tight braid with the three strands created in steps 3-5. When the braid is complete, slide on a crimp bead and one Flora Ring to one of the strands and crimp to close. Attach crimp cover. Repeat this step for the other two strands.

Step 7: Repeat Steps 3 – 6 to make other side of the necklace.

Step 8: Using 3 oval jump rings, attach them together to create a chain and then use this to attach one side of the Flora toggle to one of the Flora rings. Repeat this to attach the other side of the toggle.

Step 9: Using one round jump ring attach the Rivoli link made in Step 1 to the bottom Flora ring on the necklace. Using another round jump ring attach the bottom of the Rivoli link to another Flora Ring.

Step10: Using the oval jump rings make three chains with them. One with 4 rings, one with 8 rings, and one with 12 rings. On the bottom of each of these chains attach one 6106 16mm black diamond shimmer pendant. Using round jump rings, attach each chain to the bottom of the last Flora ring.
