The side chains will be built on both sides of the center section just completed.
The project makes a 17” necklace: 7” for the front, 1” for the clasp, and 9” for the sides (4.5” each side). Each side has 15 pairs of large rings. You can make it shorter or longer by trying it on a few times as you near completion—just be sure you make the side chains equal in length.
Close a supply of small rings. Open a supply of large rings. Open 2 extra-large rings.
1. Insert an extra large ring through the 2 small end rings of the center section, add 2 more small rings and close the ring.
2. Hold a large ring with your pliers, add the 2 small rings from the previous step, and add 2 more small rings. Close the ring.
Repeat Step 2 until you’ve used 15 large rings (or fewer if you want a shorter necklace. When you have the length you want, go back and add the second layer of large rings—just as you did when you made the triangles. Repeat steps 1-2 to make the other side chain
