Project Instructions

Use one 10 mm blue crystal, one head pin and one braided silver ring.  Place the head pin through the hole in the blue crystal. Place the crystal in the center of the braided silver ring and wrap the end of the head pin around the ring one time. Now wrap the head pin around a link in the chain and twist and trim off any excess of the head pin after wrapping.

Repeat this process 6 more times with the remaining blue crystals and silver braided rings.  Evenly space these crystal/ring combinations to a 15-inch length of silver chain.  Begin the spacing 3 inches from each end of the length. 

 

Attach at the 15-inch length of silver chain with a jump ring to the outside edge of each Starfish Connector.

 

Join two lengths of specialty chain together.  Making sure the pattern is repeated when it is joined. 

 

Join the specialty chain to the bottom center ring on each starfish.

 

You should now have two rows of chain that fall neatly next to each other, not overlapping.

 

Measure and cut an 11-inch length of silver chain.

 

Use once 6 mm glass pearl and one silver head pin. Place the head in through the hole in the pearl.  Wrap the head pin around a link in the chain and twist, trim off any excess of the head pin after wrapping.  Repeat this process 9 more times with the remaining pearls.  Space the 10 pearls to the center 4 inches of the 11-inch length of chain.

 

Attach the 11-inch length of chain to the inside ring on the bottom of each starfish connector with a jump ring.

 

Measure and cut a 15-inch length of silver chain.  Attach each end of the chain with a jump ring to the top ring of each starfish.
