Cut two sections of the medium gunmetal chain equal lengths for the back and sides of the necklace.
Use pliers and attach a jump ring on one end of each of the gunmetal chains to attach a toggle closure. Close jump rings securely.
On the open ends of the gunmetal chain, place jump rings. Drape sections of the smaller chains so that the necklace has various layers of chain. Use a different set of jump rings per necklace length. Be sure to close jump rings securely.
Cut sections of wire and use a mandrel or round nose pliers to create twists and loops. Manipulate the wire to connect and hold the three cross pendants in the wire. This is a freeform technique so each one will be unique and can be shaped as desired for the finished necklace.
Attach using a jump ring to cross pendant to help secure the pendant to the chain. Close the jump ring securely.
