If you're new to adding crimp ends to leather, you may find this demonstrational video helpful.
Cut (2) 5 inch pieces of suede. Place crimp ends on both sides of each piece of suede. Place split rings on all crimp ends. On one end of each suede strip, add clasp. Cut (2) 6-8 inches of Beadalon wire and crimp to one end of split ring already attached to leather. The top strand, start with your 4mm sterling silver bead, then 5, 6, 7, (2) 8, 10 and then 12mm bead. Follow the same pattern to end the strand. The next strand, do the same as above but use (2) 5mm, (2) 7mm and (2) 8mm.
