Step 1: Use 5" of Red Coral wire and 5" of White Quartz wire to string 1 crimp tube, 1 red velvet crystal round, 1 lampworked glass disc, and 1 red velvet crystal round. Pass through the crimp tube again, forming a loop of wire about 34mm, and crimp. Cover the tube with a crimp cover.

Step 2: Use 5" of Red Coral wire and 5" of White Quartz wire to string 1 crimp tube, 1 red velvet crystal round, the previous lampworked glass disc, 1 red velvet crystal round, 1 lampworked glass disc, and 1 red velvet crystal round. Pass through the crimp tube again, forming a loop of wire about 34mm, and crimp. Cover the tube with a crimp cover. Repeat entire step twice.

Step 3: Use 5" of Red Coral wire and 5" of White Quartz wire to string 1 crimp tube, 1 red velvet crystal round, the previous lampworked glass disc, and 1 red velvet crystal round. Pass through the crimp tube again, forming a loop of wire about 34mm, and crimp. Cover the tube with a crimp cover.

Step 4: Use three 20" strands of Dark Blue Lapis to string the first Red Coral and White Quartz wire loop formed to the center of the wires, making sure to place the Dark Blue Lapis wire between the crimp cover and the first red velvet crystal round strung. Use all six ends of wire to string one 3mm crimp tube. Place the crimp tube just above the Red Coral and White Quartz wire loop, and crimp.

Step 5: Use two strands of wire to string one 2mm crimp tube, 1 red velvet crystal round, 1 crystal barrel, 1 red velvet crystal round, and one 2mm crimp tube. Place the first tube strung 3/4" from the previous crimp tube, and crimp. Snug the beads and crimp the second tube. Use one wire to string 2 crystal bicones. Use the other wire to string 2 crystal bicones. Use both wires to string one 2mm crimp tube, 1 red velvet crystal round, 1 crystal AB rondelle, 1 red velvet crystal round, and one 2mm crimp tube. Place the first tube strung 1 1/2" from the previous crimp tube, and crimp. Snug the beads and crimp the second tube. Use one wire to string 2 crystal bicones.

Step 7: Repeat Step 6 using the remaining two wires.

Step 8: Use all six wires to string one 3mm crimp tube. Place the tube so it is 1/2" from the previous crimp tube. Pass back through the tube, leaving a 1/2" loop of wire, and crimp.

Step 9: Repeat Steps 4-7 for the other half of the necklace.
