Step 1. Onto ten separate Eye Pins slide one Cinnamon Pearl, one Bronze Pearl and one Cinnamon Pearl. Form a simple loop above each Pearl by bending the wire 90 degrees with Flat Nose Pliers. Trim the excess wire with Side Cutters to leave 3/8 inch behind, then curl this into a tight loop with Round Nose Pliers. Set aside
Step 2. Onto one Head Pin slide the Vintage Leaf Bar. Form a simple loop above the Leaf Bar by bending the wire 90 degrees with Flat Nose Pliers. Trim the excess wire with Side Cutters to leave 3/8 inch behind, then curl this into a tight loop with Round Nose Pliers. Set aside
Step 3. Twist open one Jump Ring sliding it through one Eye Pin and then through one Diamond Filigree. Twist the Jump Ring closed.
Step 4.Twist open one Jump Ring and slide it through the opposite end of the Eye Pin and then through one petal of the Poise Filigree. Twist the Jump Ring closed.
Step 5. Repeat Step 3 four more times.
Step 6. Repeat Step 3-5 to complete the opposite side of the Necklace. Before attaching to the Poise skip one petal from where the first Eye Pin Pearl sequence is attached. Instead of ending with a Diamond Filigree end with the Eye Pin Pearl sequence, connecting it to the Diamond Filigree on the opposite side of the Necklace. In place of the second Diamond Filigree attach the Grape Leaf Ring. Onto the third Eye Pin set attach a second Jump Ring along with the Vintage Leaf Bar Head Pin. This will create the Toggle Clasp for the Necklace.
Step 6. Twist open one Jump Ring and slide it through the Baroque Pendant and then through the center petal of the Poise. Twist Jump Ring closed. Enjoy!
