Before you begin, watch the video on How to Open and Close Jump Rings. This 2-tiered necklace has chains that measure approximately 14.5" and 16.5". Depending on how you want your necklace to hang, you can adjust your chain by making it longer or shorter. Note: Your necklace chain is made up of ornate links that have smaller and larger sides. Be sure to always attach your jump rings onto the larger portion of the links.
  1. Begin by taking your flush cutters and cut two lengths of chain measuring 14.5� and 16.5� inches.
  2. Next you will be adding triangle jet pendants onto your chain. I recommend opening and adding your jump rings to your Austrian crystal triangle pendants before you begin attaching them to your chain. Open up 20 jump rings, 19 for the 8mm beads and 1 for the 12mm bead. Do not close these jump rings yet.
  3. Lay your chains flat on your workspace, with your shorter chain above your larger chain. Take your shorter chain, and measure to find the center point. It should be at approximately 7.25�.
  4. Take your 12mm jet pendant and with the jump ring, go through the chain link at the center of that chain (7.25�). This will be the focal of your necklace.
  5. Now skip 2 links to the right side of your jet pendant, and place an 8mm jet pendant there by attaching the jump ring with your pliers. Close the jump ring.
  6. Repeat this process until you have two 8mm jet pendants attached to the left side of your 12mm jet pendant, and 2 on the right side, skipping 2 links between each. Set this chain length aside.
  7. Now take your longer length of chain and add an 8mm jet pendant at the approximate center point (8.25�). Skipping one link between each pendant, add 7 more 8mm pendants on either side.
  8. Now take your shorter length of chain and add a jump ring onto the last link on each side. Then bring each of the jump rings through the last link on either end of the longer length of chain and close one of the rings.
  9. Now add your clasp onto the remaining open jump ring and close the ring.
  10. Your necklace is now ready.
