2. Holding them as one, string a crimp tube onto both. Pass the wires through the loop of the toggle clasp and back through the crimp tube. 
3. Crimp the tube and trim short excess wire tail.
4. Onto one beading wire string 9 black 2-hole beads, 3 4mm royal blue faceted rounds, 3 6mm midnight blue faceted rounds, 3 6mm grey stripe faceted rounds, 3 8mm Senegal copper faceted rounds, 3 8mm blue luster faceted rounds, 3 8mm denim opaque faceted rounds, 3 8mm jonquil Preciosa crystal bicones, 3 8mm network stone rounds, and 3 10mm black matte faceted rounds.
5. String 3 14mm black and white dyed agate stone rounds and the beads from step 4 but in reverse to create a symmetrical necklace. Use a bead bug to hold beads onto strand. 
6. Holding the second beading wire, pass the wire through the second holes of the already strung black 2-hole beads and repeat the bead stringing pattern from step 4. 
7. String 4 14mm black and white dyed agate stone rounds and the beads from step 4, but in reverse and passing through the second holes of the 2-hole beads you strung in that step. 
8. Holding both wires as one, string a crimp tube. Pass the wires through the loop of the other half of the clasp. Pass the wires back through the crimp tube and crimp the tube, leaving a bit of slack for drape.
9. Trim excess wire. 
10. Open the jump ring of the small blue tassel and attach it to the loop of the toggle clasp.
