    Bracelet:
  • 3
    Slide cheetah bead onto an eye pin and form a loop. Repeat to make a total of three bead links.
  • 4
    Cut three 3/4 inch lengths of chain. Cut one 1/2 inch length of chain.
  • 5
    Use 6 mm jump rings to connect the following in order: 1/2 inch length of chain, bead link, 3/4 inch length of chain, bead link, 3/4 inch length of chain, bead link, and 3/4 inch length of chain.

    Cut a 20 inch length of chain. Use a 6 mm jump ring to connect a lobster claw clasp to one end and attach a 6 mm jump ring to the other end.

    Slide cheetah bead onto eye pin and form a loop. Repeat this step to make a total of five bead links. Use 4 mm jump rings to connect the loops of the five bead links together to make a bead link chain.

    Measure three inches to each side of the center of the 20 inch length of chain. Use 6 mm jump rings to connect each end of chain from step 10 to those measurements so that the cheetah bead link chain dangles down off the long chain in the center of the necklace.
