Using the side-cutting pliers, cut two 7-inch lengths of cable chain.
Using the side-cutting pliers, cut a 5-inch length of 22-gauge wire. Create a wrapped loop on one end.
Thread a green faceted oval onto the wire. Approximately 1-1/2 inches down from the long end of the wire, create a wrapped loop. Using the extra wire, wrap the wire in a neat spiral over the green faceted oval. Wrap the wire neatly around the length of wire below the wrapped loop created in Step 2 for one to two wraps. Trim the excess and use the chain-nose pliers to tuck in the cut end.
Cut a total of seven, 5-inch lengths of 22-gauge wire and repeat, to create a total of four green quartz and three lemon quartz fancy wrapped-loop bead links.
Using two pairs of chain-nose pliers, open a 6mm jumpring and pass it through the end of one green beading link, a 3mm silver bead, one lemon beading link, and a 3mm silver bead. Close the jumpring.
Continue the pattern in Step 3 alternating between lemon quartz beading links and green quartz beading links.
Using two pairs of chain-nose pliers, open a 6mm jumpring and pass it through the loop on the toggle-half of the clasp, the loop on one end of the bead-link chain and the last link on each end of the two lengths of chain. Close the jumpring.
