Necklace

Step 1
String one 4mm faceted round emerald crystal onto a 1-inch eyepin. Using a pair of round-nose pliers, chain-nose pliers and flush-cutters, trim wire to length and form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire, creating a 4mm faceted round emerald crystal beading link. Repeat to create a total of two 4mm faceted round emerald crystal beading links.

Repeat to create six 6mm faceted round emerald crystal beading links using one 6mm bead and a 1-inch eyepin.
Step 2
Using a pair of flush-cutters, cut eight 3-1/2 inch lengths of 22-gauge red zebra wire, six 3-1/2 inch lengths of 22-gauge green zebra wire and one 14-inch length of silver-plated 4mm lantern chain.
Step 3
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, gently compress one end of the 14-inch length of lantern chain so it fits into the cord coil. Insert the chain into the coil. Compress the bottom coil with the pliers.
Step 4
Using a pair of round-nose pliers and chain-nose pliers, form a simple loop on the straight end of a 3-1/2 inch red zebra wire. String one 4mm faceted round emerald crystal onto the wire. Pass the red zebra wire through the silver-plated lantern chain 2.5-inches from the end of the chain. Wrap the wire loosely around the outside of the lantern chain one and a half times. Pass the wire back through the lantern chain. String one 4mm faceted round emerald crystal onto the wire and finish the wire with a simple loop.
Step 5
Measure 3/4 inch down the lantern chain. Repeat Step 4 using one 3-1/2 inch red zebra wire and two 4mm faceted round emerald crystals. Repeat Step 4 using one 3-1/2 inch green zebra wire and two 4mm faceted round emerald crystals.
Step 6
String one 14x9mm red with yellow dots glass bead onto the lantern chain.

Repeat Step 5 to attach one 3-1/2 inch red zebra wire and one 3-1/2 inch green zebra wire with two 4mm faceted round emerald crystals on each wire.
Step 7
String one 14x9mm green with white dots glass bead onto the lantern chain.

Repeat Step 5 to attach one 3-1/2 inch red zebra wire and one 3-1/2 inch green zebra wire with two 4mm faceted round emerald crystals on each wire.
Step 8
String one 14x9mm red with yellow dots glass bead, one 14x9mm green with white dots glass bead, and one 14x9mm red with yellow dots glass bead onto the lantern chain.
Step 9
Repeat Steps 7, 6, 5 and 4 backward, to create the second half of the necklace in a mirror image of the first.
Step 10
Repeat Step 3 to attach a cord coil to the opposite end of the lantern chain.
Step 11
Using one pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open a 5mm jumpring. Pass the jumpring through the loop on the toggle-ring portion of the clasp and the first loop on a 4mm faceted round emerald crystal beading link. Close the jumpring.
Step 12
Open the loop on the opposite end of the 4mm faceted round emerald crystal beading link. Pass it through the opposite loop on a 6mm faceted round emerald crystal beading link. Close the loop.

Open a 5mm jumpring. Pass it through the opposite loop on the 6mm faceted round emerald crystal beading link and the first loop on a 6mm faceted round emerald crystal beading link. Close the jumpring.

Open a 5mm jumpring. Pass it through the opposite loop on the 6mm faceted round emerald crystal beading link and the first loop on a 6mm faceted round emerald crystal beading link. Close the jumpring.

Open a 5mm jumpring. Pass it through the opposite loop on the 6mm faceted round emerald crystal beading link and the loop on the cord coil on the first end of the lantern chain. Close the jumpring.
Step 13
Repeat Step 11 and 12 to attach the cord coil on the opposite end of the lantern chain to the toggle bar portion of the clasp.
