Project Instructions

Weave the chocolate ribbon though the 25-inch length of silver chain. Tie the ends of the ribbon to the ends of the silver chain length. Trim the excess ribbon and save it to use later.

 

Attach a jump ring to the top back ring of the Starfish pendant/brooch.

 

Attached the fourth link in from one end of the chain, to the jump ring that was just attached to the starfish.

 

Thread the first link of the chain through the pin mechanism on the back of the Starfish pin/brooch.  Attach a jump ring to this last link as well.

 

Attach the other end of the chain, to the jump ring that was just attached to the end of the first chain link.

 

Use on eye pin and one 13 mm chocolate crystal. Thread the eye pin through the crystal and wrap around a link of chain and twist. Trim off the excess eye pin.   Repeat 3 more times. Starting at the end of the chain attached to the starfish, measure 8 inches over on the chain.  Evenly distribute the chocolate crystals throughout this area of the chain.

 

Attach the lengths of specialty chain together to measure 18 inches.  Weave the remaining chocolate ribbon through the chocolate chain and tie it off to the last links of the chain, at each end.

 

Fold the chocolate chain in half. Place a Jump ring on one end and join the other end to it.  You should now have a large circle of chain and ribbon.

 

With the chain length folded in half, you will attach each half/end to the silver chain.  Attach one end to the silver chain where it meets at the Starfish. Attach the other end approx 8 inches over from the first attachment.

 

Disassemble the specialty starfish chain and make 5 starfish charms with a blue bead attached to each one.  Evenly space these charms on the Chocolate chain ribbon length and attach each one with a jump ring.
