  3. Open one jump ring and attach it the end of one length of rolo chain that is 9.5 inches. Close the jump ring.
  4. Move to the other side of this chain. Attach another jump ring to this end of the chain and to the chevron chain (note: the chevron chain should be pointing down towards the center of the necklace.)
  5. Move to the other side of the chevron chain. Attach another jump ring to this end of the chain and to a length of rolo chain that is 2 inches.
  6. Move to the end of this chain and open one jump ring and attach it to this chain as well as to the curved bar link. Close the jump ring.
