This necklace measures approximately 17 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the length of chain on both sides respectively.
  1. Cut 2 lengths of chain 6.5 inches long. Set aside.
  2. Cut 2 lengths of chain 1 inch long. Set aside.
  3. Take one eye pin and string on one pearl. Make a simple wire loop. Trim any excess wire. Set aside. Repeat this step twice more.
  4. Take one eye pin with a pearl on it, open the loop, same as you would a jump ring, then attach it the the end link of one 6.5 length of chain. Close the loop.
  5. In the same manner as above, attach the other loop of the pearl you just added to one 1 inch length of chain. To the other side of this 1 inch length attach another pearl. To the other side of that pearl, attach the second 1 inch length of chain. Then attach one more pearl and then the other 6.5 inch length.
  6. To one end of the necklace, open a jump ring and attach it to the final link in the chain.
  7. To the other end of the necklace, open a jump ring and attach it to the final link in the chain and to one lobster clasp.
