1. Cut 1 10-inch piece of wire. At the halfway point of the wire, string the sky blue cloud agate pendant. Make a wrapped loop.

2. Slide 1 quartz point onto one of the wire tails. Wrap each of the wires around the stone.

3. Twist the two wires together. Slide another quartz point onto one wire. Wrap each of the tails around the stone then bring them together so that they meet above the stone.

4. Holding both wires as one, Make a wrapped loop.

5. Cut 43 2-inch pieces of wire.

6. Make a wrapped loop with one wire, string one of the druzy agate rounds and make another wrapped loop.

7. Repeat step 6 using either druzy agate rounds, the final three quartz points, and the acrylic rondelles, attaching links as you make them to create two 13” strands with the smaller druzy rounds at the ends (5 8mm druzy rounds on each strand).

8. Onto the final piece of wire, string the faceted glass teardrop so that it is ½ inch from the end of the wire. Bend the wire into a U shape so that the wire conforms to the end of the bead. Wrap the short wire around the longer wire.

9. Make a wrapped loop with the longer wire and wrap over the first wraps. Trim wire as necessary.

10. Open a jump ring and attach the wrapped loop above the pendant and each of the two strands of bead links.

11. Open the second jump ring and attach the other end of one strand near the smaller druzy rounds as well as the faceted teardrop.

12. Open the third jump ring and attach it to the other end of the necklace and the loop of the lobster clasp.
