Step One

Cut the ball off the end of a featherweight headpin and feed on the smaller drop shape bead so it sits centrally. Bend both wires upward and pinch together with flat nose pliers above the gemstone.

Step Two

Using round nose pliers pinch above the gemstone and make a loop, feed on a jumpring then continue to wrap the loop securing it in place, trim off any excess and tuck in the sharp edges.

Step Three

Repeat steps 1 & 2 with the larger drop shape and another featherweight headpin.

Step Four

Attach the smaller drop to the centre link of the 54cm length of chain and add the larger drop to the centre link of the 70cm length of chain.

Step Five

Using a jumpring connect one end of the 54cm chain to one end of the 70cm chain. Then repeat this on the other side using another jumpring.

Step Six

Attach a toggle clasp to the jumprings to complete the necklace.
