Step 1 Cut four strands of copper chains, each 15 links in length. Cut four strands of mixed chains each 15 double links in length.
Step 2 Take one eye pin and insert through one brown seed bead and one coin bead. Bend the non-loop end of eye pin at a 45 degree angle. Trim the edge to about ¼" with side cutter then make a simple loop with the round nose pliers to secure the beads. This will now be called “Coin Connector” throughout the instructions.
Step 3 Take the first 15-link double mixed chain. Open two links on the right-most end of chain then connect to the two links on the left-most end of chain. Close two open chain links. You should now have a full circle chain of double mixed chain. Repeat to make four sets. These will now be called Ring 1, Ring 2, Ring 3, and Ring 4 throughout the instructions.
Step 4 To make Strand 1:
A. Insert the right end of first 15-link copper chain through Ring 1 and Ring 2. Open right-most end link of the first copper chain, then connect to the left-most end link. Close copper chain link.
B. Take second 15-link copper chain and insert through Ring 2. Open right-most end link of the second copper chain then connect to the left-most end link.
Step 5 Repeat Step 4 to make Strand two using the rest of prepared chains from Step 1.
Step 6 Connect one end of Coin Connector to any one link on copper chain end of Strand 1. Connect the opposite end of Coin Connector to any one link on double mixed chain end of Strand 2.
Step 7 Attach lobster clasp to one end of necklace and one jump ring on opposite end.
