Instructions:

1. Cut 20-inch, 22-inch, and 2-inch pieces of wire.

2. Place a bead bug at the end of all three wires.

3. Holding all three wires as one, string 2 crimp beads and the following beads with a small Bali-style spacer between each one: 1 4mm lavender faceted round, 3 purple faceted rounds, 3 tanzanite & blue faceted rounds, 1 fuchsia over rose faceted round, and 3 tanzanite and blue faceted rounds.

4. String 1 small spacer, 1 medium spacer, 1 bead cap, 1 blue blown glass oval, 1 bead cap, 1 medium spacer, and 1 small spacer.

5. Divide the wires. Notice on the filigree flower multi-hole bead where the three holes are that are closest together. This will serve as your three-hole connector. Pass the shortest wire through the center hole in the filigree flower multi-hole bead and out the first hole.

6. Onto this wire string 1 small spacer, 1 purple faceted round, 1 small spacer, 1 medium spacer, 1 small spacer, and 1 light sapphire faceted round. Repeat three more times. String 1 small spacer, 1 medium spacer, 1 small spacer, 1 purple faceted round, and one small spacer. Pass the wire through the top hole of the other filigree flower and out the center hole opposite it. Place a bead bug to hold stand in place.

7. Pass the second longest wire through the center hole in the filigree flower multi-hole bead and out the second hole.

8. String 1 small spacer, 1 saucer, 1 small spacer, 1 fuchsia over rose faceted round, 1 small spacer, 1 bead cap, 1 dusky rose over silver faceted round, 1 bead cap, and 1 small spacer. Repeat three more times. String 1 fuchsia over rose, 1 small spacer, 1 saucer, and 1 small spacer. Pass the wire through the second hole of the filigree flower and out the center hole opposite it so that both wires emerge from the same hole. Place wire in the bead bug with other wire.

9. Onto a ball pin, string 1 saucer, 1 magenta nugget, 1 saucer, and 1 lavender faceted round. Make a simple loop. Repeat 9 more times to create 10 magenta drops.

10. Onto a ball pin, string 1 saucer, 1 purple nugget, 1 saucer, and 1 lavender faceted round. Make a simple loop.

11. Pass the longest wire through the center hole of the filigree flower bead and out the third hole.

12. String 1 small spacer, 1 tanzanite & blue faceted round, 1 small spacer and 1 magenta drop. Repeat four more times.

13. String 1 small spacer, 1 tanzanite and blue faceted round, 1 small spacer, and the purple drop.

14. String1 small spacer, 1 tanzanite & blue faceted round, 1 small spacer and 1 magenta drop. Repeat four more times.

15. String1 small spacer, 1 tanzanite & blue faceted round, and 1 small spacer. Pass the beading wire through the third hole of the other filigree flower bead and out the same hole as the previous two wires.

16. Remove the bead bug. Holding all three wires as one, string 1 small spacer, 1 medium spacer, 1 bead cap, 1 blue blown glass oval, 1 bead cap, 1 medium spacer, and 1 small spacer.

17. With a small spacer between each, string 3 tanzanite and blue faceted rounds, 1 fuchsia faceted round, 3 tanzanite and blue faceted rounds, 3 purple faceted rounds, 1 lavender faceted round, and 2 crimp beads.

18. Double check the spacing, tension, and layout of your beads before passing all three wires on one end through the jump ring and back through the crimp bead. Flatten one crimp bead and trim excess wire.

19. Pass the wires on the other side of the necklace through the loop of the lobster clasp and back through the crimp bead. Flatten the crimp bead and trim excess wire.
