3. Cut two 8–10-in. (20–25 cm) pieces of chain. Open a jump ring. Attach the chains and the dangle. Close the jump ring. Attach two 12 mm pearl units to the jump ring.

4. On each end, starting near the center dangle, attach 12 to 17 bead units in descending size. Skip a few more links, then attach the last bead units. On one end, use a jump ring to attach a lobster claw clasp. Attach a jump ring to the other end.

Tip!

The bead spacing on either side of the necklace doesn’t have to be a mirror image; just make sure to evenly distribute the visual “weight” of the beads.

3. Attach a lobster claw clasp and the end link of the shorter chain. Attach a pearl unit and the end link of the longer chain.
