Directions:
Step 1. Cut a piece of Soft Flex measuring approximately 15 inches in length.

Step 2. Take Soft Flex strand and slide on a Copper Crimp Bead. Take one piece of the Toggle Clasp and slide one end of the Soft Flex through the loop and back through the Crimp Bead. Snug the Crimp Bead up to the Toggle and gently crush Bead with Crimping Pliers. Trim excess Soft Flex.

Step 3. Begin by stringing 20 Seed Beads, followed by this pattern:
One 4mm Golden Shadow
One Heishi
One 4mm Blue Zircon
One Copper Round
One 4mm Blue Zircon
One Heishi
One 5mm Golden Shadow
One Spacer Ring
One Bead Cap
One Turquoise Jasper Bead
One Bead Cap
One Spacer Ring
One 5mm Golden Shadow
One Heishi
One 4mm Blue Zircon
One Copper Round
One 4mm Blue Zircon
One Heishi
One 4mm Golden Shadow
10 Seed Beads

Step 4. Repeat Step 3 three more times (excluding the initial 20 Seed Beads).

Step 5. String the last 20 Seed Beads followed by a Crimp Bead. Take the other piece of the Toggle Clasp and slide the end of the Soft Flex through the loop and back through the Crimp Bead. Gently crush the Crimp Bead with Crimping Pliers and trim excess Soft Flex.

Step 6. To create the three dangles: Take two Head Pins and string a 4mm Golden Shadow on each. Take a third Head Pin and string One Heishi, One 4mm Blue Zircon and One Copper Round. This completes one group of dangles. Repeat two times.

Step 7. Form a tight loop above the bead on each Head Pin by bending the Head Pin 90 degrees with Flat Nose Pliers. Trim excess with Wire Cutters so that 3/8 inch remain, and curl into a loop with Round Nose Pliers.

Step 8. Gently twist open three Jump Rings with Flat Nose Pliers. Take the three dangle sets and slide each group of three onto a Jump Ring.

Step 9. Take one of these Jump Rings and slide it through another opened Jump Ring. Gently close the Jump Ring containing the dangle. Slide the other Jump Ring to the middle of one of the three sets of 10 Seed Beads. Gently close this Jump Ring with Pliers. Repeat with the other two dangles on the two remaining sets of 10 Seed Beads. Enjoy!
