|1. Cut a 16" length of wire. Wrap one end of the wire 3-4 times around the oval's edge as shown. Pass the wire through a bead, then wrap it around the opposite side of the oval. Weave your way back and forth across the oval, adding beads as you work from one end to the other. Repeat for four ovals.
2. String 14 violet opal 4mm rounds onto frost Wildfire and knot the ends together to form a circle. Place the beaded circle inside a Katiedids donut. Repeat for three donuts.
3. For each donut, pass a head pin through a hole from the center extending outward. The head pin should pass over the beaded circle to hold it in place. String a briolette onto the head pin, then make a wrapped loop to connect it to a wire-wrapped oval. Repeat for the other end of the donut so the focal section pattern is: oval, donut, oval, donut, oval, donut, oval.
4. Separate the chain into two 2 ½" lengths. Open the last link on each chain and attach one to each side of the necklace focal section. Open the last link on each side of the necklace and attach half of the clasp.
