Instructions
Step 1
To make these instructions easier to read, I will call the 1/8" rings small rings and the 5/32" rings large rings. Place 2 closed small rings on a large ring and close the ring. Add another large ring in the same place as the first large ring, and close the ring.

Step 2
With an open large ring go through the 2 small rings, add 2 closed small rings, and close the ring. Add another large ring in the same place as the first large ring.

Step 4
With the 19g large ring go through the last 2 small rings and close the ring. At the other end of the chain using an open small ring go through both large rings of the end link, add the trigger clasp, and close the ring.

Step 5
To wire wrap the garnets you can use either headpins or wire. If you are using the wire, work directly from the coil of wire to save wastage. Place the bead onto the wire, using chain nose pliers bend the tip of the wire back onto itself and flatten it with your pliers. If it is a bit long just trim the short end. Test that the bead will not fall off. For the wire and headpin method, form a double wrapped loop. Make sure this loop is big enough for 2 of the small rings to go through it. Trim the end and tuck it in so the end feels smooth.

With a small ring attach a garnet to one of the large ringed links, making sure to go through both of the large rings and checking that the front of the wire wrapping is showing at the front of the necklace. Add another small ring in the same place.
