  2. Make simple dangles using 12 ball star head pins. Repeat the procedure detailed in the previous step. Set aside.
     
  3. Attach the lobster clasp to the Beadalon 49 strand silver plated wire. Cover the crimp bead using the pre-opened crimp cover.
     
  4. String 6 curve beads alternating with 6 simple ball/star dangles. After the sixth dangle, slide one curve bead and 3 of the dangles made with the fire-polish beads. Repeat this pattern until all the dangles are strung. Follow the colors shown or create your own pattern.
     
  5. Repeat the pattern on the other side of the necklace using 6 curve beads and 6 ball/star dangles. Finish the end and cover the crimp using the pre-opened bead crimp cover. Trim excess wire.
     
  6. Slide the last ball star head pin onto the last fire-polish bead, make a half loop and slide the tag onto it. Finish the loop by wrapping it twice. Trim excess wire. Add this dangle to the jump ring.

Tip: To showcase the golden color more vividly with this design, use gold plated findings.
