Cut two 5-inch lengths and two 10-inch lengths of Accu-Flex® professional quality beading wire.
Use a jump ring to attach a 16.5mm charm to a donut component. Repeat with a second 16.5mm charm and a 20.5mm charm to create three components, as seen in the image above.
String a crimp and an Accu-Guard™ wire protector onto a 10-inch length of beading wire. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the Accu-Guard leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end. Crimp then add a crimp cover.
String Celestial Crystal® beads and rondelle beads in the appropriate pattern, using the image as reference. When you reach the end of the pattern, repeat Step 3 using a charm component in place of an Accu-Guard to secure that strand.
Repeat this process to string beads and components in the appropriate pattern, using the image above as reference.
