Repeat, setting another 12mm sapphire rivoli crystal into a 19x14mm link setting, a 12mm sapphire rivoli crystal into a 17x14mm drop setting, and a 14mm sapphire rivoli crystal into a 23x17mm link setting.

Open a jumpring and pass it through the opposite loop on the 12mm sapphire rivoli crystal link and the last link on one end of the remaining 6-1/2 inch length of chain. Close the jumpring.

Open a jumpring and pass it through the last link on the other end of the 6-1/2 inch length of chain and the loop on the second half of the chain. Close the jumpring.
STEP 7
Open a jumpring and pass it through a loop on the 14mm sapphire rivoli crystal link and the last link on the 3/4-inch piece of chain attached to the strand in Step 5.
