1. Make a loop on one end of a necklace memory wire coil. String all black seeds and make loop to finish off the coil. Repeat this with a coil of garnet stones and a coil of red and pink seed beads.

2. Put the coils together and connect the three loops of one side together using a 6 mm jump ring. Use another 6 mm jump ring to attach the lobster clasp to the choker. Slightly twist the coils and connect the loops of the other side using another 6 mm jump ring. Attach another 6 mm jump ring.

3. Attach the crystal heart charm to the eye of the eye pin using one 4 mm jump ring. String the photobead on the eye pin. Using your round nose pliers make a loop attaching the bead to the round part of a toggle clasp.

4. Slide the heart pendant onto the choker.
