Step 1 Using your side cutters, cut two 6" pieces of the small textured antique silver chain. Set aside.
Step 2 Select one large, one medium, and one small flower bead, as desired. Insert a head pin through one small pearl bead, then the flower beads, from small to large. Snip the head pin, leaving about ¼" tail. Taking your round nose pliers, create a loop. Set aside.
Step 3 Insert a head pin through one small pearl bead, and then one small flower bead. Snip the head pin, leaving about ¼" tail. Taking your round nose pliers, create a loop. Repeat eleven times. These will be referred to as “Small Flower Charms.”
Step 4 Using your side cutters cut one 6½", one 7", and one 7½" piece of oval link chain. Loop all three strands of chain through a jump ring. Repeat on other end of chains. This will now be referred to as “Layered Chain.”
Step 5 Taking the flower you created in Step 2, attach to one end of your Layered Chain. Taking a jump ring, attach one 6" piece of chain from Step 1.
Step 6 Taking the other end of your Layered Chain piece, attach the other 6" piece of chain.
Step 7 Taking your twelve Small Flower Charms, position them evenly across your layered chain piece; attach each one.
Step 8 To finish your necklace, use a jump ring to attach your loop and toggle to the ends of your chains.
