Place one helix crystal on an eye pin, cut to length and turn an eye.
Repeat till you have 5 crystals on eye pins with an eye either end.
Cut your chain into 8 pieces of 12 links each (approx 50 mm long).
Using a 6mm jump ring, join one helix crystal to one length of chain. Using another 6mm jump ring, attach another length of chain to the other eye on the helix crystal. Put this length of crystal/chain aside and then repeat the process with the piece of chain and chain and crystal/eyepins until you have 4 lengths of chain with a crystal in the centre.
Open a jump ring and attach one crystal/chain to one of the large oval closed rings. Open another jump ring and attach a second crystal/length of chain to the other end of the large oval closed ring. Put aside.
Repeat with the other four lengths of chain and crystal and large oval closed ring.
Open a 6mm jump ring and attach one long length of crystal/chain to the 25mm closed ring. Repeat with the other length of chain.
Open another jump ring and attach an eyepin/crystal to the large (25mm) jump ring.
Open another jump ring and attach the chain tassel to the bottom of this crystal/eyepin.
Open another jump ring and attach the large fancy parrot clasp to one of the long lengths of chain/crystal.
Open another of the jump rings and attach to the other long length of chain. Open the last jump ring and attach the handmade hand charm to this jump ring.
