1. Cut two 6” lengths of large link chain. Connect (2) 6mm jump rings together and attach one of them to an end of one length of chain. Connect a 6mm jump ring and a lobster claw clasp to an end of the other length of chain. Connect one 6mm jump ring to the other ends of each length of chain.
2. Slide a ball pin through a pink matte bead and form a loop. Repeat to make a total of six bead drops. Using 4mm jump rings, connect bead drops to the bottom loop of six neon yellow connectors to make six connector bead drops.
3. Lay out the following components, in order left to right: one orange charm, one connector bead drop, one orange charm, one connector bead drop, one orange charm, one connector bead drop, one orange and neon yellow connector, one connector bead drop, one orange charm, one connector bead drop, one orange charm, one connector bead drop, and one orange charm. Connect the components together with chains of (3) 4mm jump rings. Add 2 consecutive 4mm jump rings to each end.
4. Connect the 4mm jump rings from each end of step 3 to the 6mm jump rings at each end of the large link chains from step 1. 5. Cut a 2 ½” and a 3 ½” length of chain. Use 4mm jump rings to connect each chain to the loops on each side of the center orange and neon yellow connector, positioning the short chain above the longer chain.
