  1. Count 20 links from the lobster clasp on the 24 inch chain. Spread the next link apart to separate the first 20 links and the lobster clasp from the rest of the chain.
  2. Add the green rose from the blue and green rose bead strand with a jump ring. Add 7 more chain links with a jump ring and then the blue rose.

  4. Using the photo at right as a guide, cut the large blue part from the rest of the product in the bead mix strand with round focal bead. Run an eye pin through the round bead, through a green rose and out the top of the blue round bead. Carefully create a simple loop at the top. Attach to the jump ring on link number 8.
