Using jumprings, connect the domed pendant to the center "point" of the bail.
Using jumprings, connect a link to two spots on one side of the bail.
Connect enough links to form a small section of chain.
Using jumprings, connect the embossed link to each length of chain. The embossed link in this necklace hits just below the collarbone.
Using a jumpring connect an ICE Resin framed pendant to a hole in the embossed link.
Cut a length of cable chain. Cut the head off a headpin. Form a double-wrapped loop connector, capturing the loop on the toggle ring half of the clasp with one wrapped loop and the last link of chain with the other wrapped loop.
Thread blue recycled beads onto the chain. Thread a filigree bead onto an eyepin. Form a wrapped loop on the other end of the eyepin to form a filigree component. Open the simple loop on the filigree component and add it to the length of chain.
Use a jumpring to connect the wrapped loop of the filigree component to the single hole on the embossed link.
Repeat Step 3. Join the two links together with a jumpring then add more links to form a single length of chain.
Repeat Step 4 connecting the chain just made to the square link.
Using a jumpring, add a length of round link chain to the square link. As an embellishment--using a twisted jumpring, add a round link to the chain and the jumpring connecting the square pendant.
Use a jumpring to connect the square frame ICE Resin pendant to the round link chain.
Use a jumpring to connect the other half of the toggle clasp to the round link chain.
