Project Instructions

Use two pairs of chain nose pliers to open all jump rings. Add the rings one at a time, attaching two jump rings through each of the diagonal “corner” openings in the slider. The rings will sit next to the crystal-studded elements on the diagonal corners of the slider. Add another pair of rings on the opposite corner.

Attach two rings through each pair of rings attached to the slider. This starts a 2" section of chain.

Add another jump ring through the previous two rings and one loop of a crystal oval link. Add a second jump ring, completing the 2x2x2 chain pattern. Repeat on the opposite side of the chain.

Attach a ring through the far loop of the crystal link and through the loop of a second crystal link. Add a second ring in the same position. Repeat on the opposite side of the chain.

Use two pairs of chain nose pliers to open the end link of a 4½" section of chain, and slide the chain link through the loop of the crystal link. Close the chain link. Repeat on the opposite side of the chain with a second section of chain.

Attach a 7mm antique brass jump ring through the far end of the chain and slide on the lobster claw half of the clasp. Close the jump ring.

Attach two 7mm antique brass jump rings to the opposite end of the chain.
