Separate the strands into Strand A, Strand B, and Strand C, with A on the left, B in the middle, and C on the right.
Step 2. String one Silver Round, one Vintage Rose Crystal, and one Silver Round onto Strands B and C together.
Step 3. String one Silver Round, one Indian Pink Crystal, and one Silver Round onto Strands A and B.
Step 4. String one Silver Round, one Copper Ball bead, and one Silver Round onto Strands B and C.
Step 5. Repeat Step 2 on Strands A and B.
Step 6. Repeat Step 3 on Strands B and C.
Step 7. String the following onto all three strands, fitting snugly against the last Silver Round: 1 Copper Round, 1 “E” Bead, 1 Copper Round, 1 “P” Bead, 1 Copper Round, 1 “O” Bead, 1 Copper Round, 1 “H” Bead, and 1 Copper Round.
