: : : Materials : : :

STEP 1
Cut two 10-inch pieces of ribbon. Cut two 12-inch pieces of ribbon. Cut wire into two 9-inch pieces.
STEP 2
Using one 10-inch piece of ribbon thread through Swarovski helix pendant article 6020 37mm with tails matching. Using an overhand knot, tie the helix pendant to the radiant ring.
STEP 3
Hold 3/4 inch spiral ring onto the inside, top portion of the radiant ring. Hold the 1-inch spiral ring onto the outside top portion of the radiant ring. Using one piece of wire, wire wrap the ring sets together, about 4-6 times. (Note: keep all three rings flat and next to each other, do not overlap the rings.) Cut the tails of the wire and tuck into the rings. Using one 12-inch piece of ribbon, wrap around the wire wrap twice (so wire doesn't show). Perform an overhand knot where the knot sits on top of the inside part of the 1-inch spiral ring.
STEP 4
Repeat Step 3 substituting the Swarovski helix pendant article 6020 30mm for the helix pendant article 6020 37mm, the hammertone ring in place of the radiant ring, the 5/8 inch spiral ring in place of the 3/4 inch spiral ring and the 3/4 inch spiral ring in place of the 1-inch spiral ring.
STEP 5
At the end of the 0.014 beading wire, put on one crimp bead and (9) Swarovski Xilion beads article 5328 3mm light azore, slide on one helix unit from the top of the ring and loop wire tail back through crimp bead, then crimp the crimp bead and cover with crimp cover. (Note: the 9 Swarovski Xilion beads article 5328 3mm light azore create a loop in which the top ring is captured.)
