For the end of tassel Agate, make a wrapped loop as before, thread on the Agate, then make a larger loop, then thread on the 5 pieces of chain, grab the loop with round nose pliers then continue to wrap then trim.


Step four

To construct the necklace, open a jump ring, add two rings on and close.
