Gather Your Materials

You’ll need:

Cut Your Chain

Using your wire cutters, cut your chain into 2 lengths: 14inches and 8 inches.  This will give you about a 38 inch necklace when you’re done.  If you want to tailor the length, add or subtract any length now from your chain.

Add Beads

Stack your beads onto an eyepin.  The eyepin has an open loop at one end of a straight wire.

Finish Your Eyepin

Using your chain nose pliers, make a 90 degree bend in the wire, close to your bead.  Next, using your round nose pliers, grab close to the tip of your wire.  Finally, by rotating your wrist, twist the wire  into round circle.

Connect It All Together

Now, connect your eyepins to the brass bars, using your round nose pliers to open the loop a bit at the end of each eyepin.  Afterwards, start connecting your bars together with the jumprings.  Then attach your bars to your chain.

You're Done!

That’s it!  You’re all done.  It’s ready to wear.  Next, you can try out different beads to add to your necklace, and experiment with different bars!
