Step One

Take the 2 x 8 ½cms of chain and add the toggle clasp to each end using 2 of the 5mm jump rings.

2

Step Two

Add a 5mm jump ring to each end of all the lengths of chain.

3

Step Three

Add all the lengths of chain in length order to a 7mm jump ring and connect to the 8 ½cm length of chain. Making sure the chain lengths are in the same order add to the opposite side with a 7mm jump ring.

Step Four

Using the head pins add shell pearls in random sizes to the different chains using the wrapped loop method. Don't worry if adding the pearls looks like it is pulling the necklace out of shape, keep adding shell pearls and it will balance itself out. Add shell pearls until you are pleased with the look.
