String 9 XILION Bicone Beads article 5328 4mm Fern Green from the Swarovski crystal assortment onto one headpin. Turn a loop at the top of the headpin. Repeat two more times.
Repeat step 1 using the Swarovski XILION Bead 4mm White Alabaster and then repeat again using the XILION Bead 4mm Sun.
String 10 Swarovski XILION Bead onto the 24 gauge wire alternating each bead with one of the beaded headpins made in steps 1 and 2. Start with the Fern Green, then add the White Alabaster in the middle and the Sun at the other end. Link the headpins on the wire with the loop made at the top of each headpin. When the necklace is worn, the Fern Green needs to be to the right.
Make a loop on both ends of the beaded wire from step 3.
Cut the beading wire in half. String one piece of wire through one loop formed in the wire in step 4. Add a crimp bead and string the beading wire over the loop and back through the crimp bead. Crimp the bead to secure. Attach a crimp cover over the crimped bead.
String on 5 Swarovski XILION Beads article 5328 4mm and then add 3 XILION Beads 5mm Crystal. Repeat this step 4 times and add 5 more XILION Beads 4mm Crystal.
String beaded wire end through a crimp bead, then through the 6mm jumpring and back through the crimp bead. Pull to take up slack in wire, but make sure the beads are not too tight--the beaded wire should be flexible. Crimp the crimp bead to secure and cover with crimp cover.
Repeat steps 6 and 7 for the other side of necklace. Open the jumpring and attach the lobster clasp. Close the jumpring to secure.
