Dot knots with glue. Set aside to dry.
Trim ends to 3/8'' (10 cm).
Cut a length of nylon thread to 2'' (5 cm).
Tie the length around the elastic foundation, leaving equal length tails.

Add the top components of (Start with Set A) to one tail thread.
Push the crystals flush to the knot and trim the end to .25'' (7mm).
Hold the crystals taut against the tail of the knot with a tweezers with one hand. Hold the flame of a butane lighter next to the tail and carefully burn a ball up to the crystal, creating a knot that will secure them.

Add the bottom components (match Set A bottom to Set A top, etc.) to the remaining tail end.
Repeat Step 5 to secure the crystals in place.
