    Cut two 7-1/8 inch lengths of chain. Use 6 mm jump rings to attach half a toggle clasp to one end of each length of chain. Use 4 mm jump rings to connect the other end of each length of chain to a single loop on each of two metal rhinestone connectors. Cut two 1-1/8 inch lengths of chain. Use 4 mm jump rings to connect one end of each length of chain to the other loop of each connector in earlier in this step. Use 4 mm jump rings to connect the other end of each 1-1/8 inch length of chain to a loop of each of two more rhinestone connectors.

    Cut a three-link length of chain. Use 4 mm jump rings to connect the link on each end of the chain to the loops on the other side of each rhinestone connector that you just made. Slide an eye pin through a metal rhinestone round, through the holes of the druzy accent, then wrap the head pin between the metal rhinestone round and the druzy accent. Use a 6 mm jump ring to connect the loop at the top of the metal rhinestone round to the middle link in the length of the three-link length chain from earlier. Cut the head off a head pin. Use the head pin to wire wrap the two metal connectors, from the end of step 2, together in the space between the third and fourth rhinestone down from the top loop, on the inside edge of each connector.

    Slide a metal rhinestone round onto a headpin and form a loop. Continue this sliding of a rhinestone onto a headpin and making a loop until you have 18 rhinestone drops. Attach the loops of rhinestone drops and rainbow faceted charms to the following chain links that connect the top and bottom rhinestone metal connectors on each side of the necklace (begin counting the links backward from where the jump ring connects the chain to the top loop of the bottom metal rhinestone connector on each side): one rhinestone drop to link two, one rainbow faceted charm to link three, two rhinestone drops to link four, one rhinestone drop to link six, one rainbow faceted charm to link seven, one rhinestone drop to link eight, and one rhinestone drop to the jump ring that connects to the chain to the next metal rhinestone connector. Attach the loops of rhinestone drops and rainbow faceted charms to the following chain links, above the jump rings that connect the top loop of the last rhinestone connector to the chain, on each side of the necklace: one rhinestone drop to link one, one rainbow faceted charm to link two, one rhinestone round to link three, and one rhinestone round to link four.
