    Thread one 12 mm Black bead and one crimp bead onto both wires. Close the crimp bead snug against the Black bead.

    Slide one 12 mm Black bead onto one of the wires, slide one crimp bead onto both wires, and close the crimp bead approximately 1-3/4 inch from the Black bead from step #4.

    Slide one crimp bead onto both wires and close the crimp approximately 1-3/4 inch beyond the previous crimp.
  • 9
    Thread both wires through one Black bead, one crimp bead, one 8 mm split ring, and the last link on the other side of the 19 inch length of Black chain from step #3. Thread both wires back through the crimp bead and down through the Black bead. Close the crimp snug against the Black bead. Trim any excess wire to complete the necklace.
