The chain length in this necklace is 18 inches. For a necklace that is longer or shorter, simply adjust the chain length.
  1. Begin by cutting an 18" length of matte gold rolo chain using your flush cutters.
  2. Open a gold plated jump ring using your chain nose pliers and slide it onto the last link from one end of chain. Close the jump ring back up.
  3. Next, open another jump ring and slide it onto the last link from the other end of your chain. Before closing, also slide on the loop from your gold plated spring clasp and close.
  4. Now you will begin removing the leaf charms from your charm chain length using flush cutters. Carefully snip off 9 leaf charms, making sure to keep their loops intact.
  5. Find the center 9" mark of your chain length. Attach a leaf charm via an open jump ring onto that center chain link and close.
  6. Skip three links on the right side of that first charm, and attach your second charm and close. Do the same thing on the third link on the other side of the chain and close.
  7. Repeat the process of attaching charms via open jump rings onto each third link until you have a total of 9 charms dangling off of your necklace. You may add on as many charms as you like.
  8. Close your clasp and you're done!
