Project Instructions

Step 1 Cut five pieces of chain into the following lengths: 15", 8", 7", 5½" and 5".

Step 2 Prepare the following components:

a. Connect first black stone to one crystal charm with a small jump ring. This will now be called "crystal link" throughout the instructions.
b. Connect second black stone to one black charm with a small jump ring. This will now be called "black link" throughout the instructions.
c. Connect third black stone to first circle pendant with a small jump ring. Make two sets using the fourth black stone and second circle pendant. This will now be called "circle link" throughout the instructions.
d. Connect fifth black stone to one trapezoid pendant with a small jump ring. This will now be called "trapezoid link" throughout the instructions.

Step 3 Connect the following chains to black stones by opening and closing chain link ends:

Take 5½" chain and connect to left loop of sixth black stone.
Take 7" chain and connect to right loop of the same black stone. This will now be called "strand 1" throughout the instructions.
Take 8" chain and connect to left loop of seventh black stone. Take 5" chain and connect to right loop of the same black stone. This will now be called "strand 2" throughout the instructions.

Step 4 Locate the center chain link of the 15" chain and connect "trapezoid link" on mark with a small jump ring. Measure 1" to the right of "trapezoid link" and connect first "circle link" on mark with a small jump ring. Measure 1" to the right of first "circle link" and connect "black link" on mark with a small jump ring.

Step 5 Measure 1" to the left of "trapezoid link" and connect second "circle link" on mark with a small jump ring. Measure 1" to the left of second "circle link" and connect "crystal link" on mark with a small jump ring.

Step 6 Open a large jump ring and insert through the left chain link ends of 15" chain with components followed by "strand 2" then "strand 1." Close jump ring. Repeat on opposite ends with another jump ring.

Step 7 Connect lobster clasp to one end of necklace using a jump ring. Connect one larger size jump ring on the opposite end of necklace.
