Instructions
These instructions will give you a necklace that is 22 Inches.
  1. To begin, make all of your baubles. Take one 10mm pearl and string it on to one head pin. Make a simple wire loop. Set aside. Repeat once more.
  2. Take one 10mm pearl and string it on to one eye pin. Make a simple wire loop. Set aside. Repeat four more times.
  3. Take one 8mm pearl and string it on to one eye pin. Make a simple wire loop. Set aside. Repeat seven more times.
  4. Take one 6mm pearl and string it on to one eye pin. Make a simple wire loop. Set aside. Repeat seven more times.
  5. Cut a length of chain that is about 3/4 of an inch, which is 11 links. Set aside. Repeat 21 more times.
  6. First, assemble the earrings. Take one of your simple wire loop headpins with a 10mm pearl on it, and open the loop, the same as you would a jump ring. Slip on one segment of chain and close the wire loop.
  7. Next move to the other side of this chain and take one simple wire loop eye pin with one 8mm pearl on it and open one loop, slip on the end of this chain. Close the loop.
  8. Move to the other side of this pearl and attach a second segment of chain by opening and closing the simple wire loop.
  9. Next move to the other side of this chain and take one simple wire loop eye pin with one 6mm pearl on it and open one loop, slip on the end of this chain. Close the loop.
  10. Now on the other side of this pearl, add one earring finding by opening that simple wire loop and closing it.
  11. Now repeat the previous five steps to assemble the second earring.
  12. To assemble the necklace, you will take one segment of chain and attach one 6mm pearl eye pin to it by opening the simple wire loop and closing it. You will continue to assemble the necklace in this manner.
  13. The complete pattern for the necklace is as follows: chain, 6mm pearl, chain, 6mm pearl, chain, 6mm pearl, chain, 8mm pearl, chain, 8mm pearl, chain, 8mm pearl, chain, 10mm pearl, chain, 10mm pearl, chain, 10mm pearl, chain, 10mm pearl, chain, 10mm pearl, chain, 8mm pearl, chain, 8mm pearl, chain, 8mm pearl, chain, 6mm pearl, chain, 6mm pearl, chain, 6mm pearl, and one final piece of chain.
  14. To one end of this strand, take one jump ring and attach it to the last link in the chain by opening and closing it.
