Pearl Necklace, part 2

After completing part 1, I had to make the chain. First I calculated how long my necklace was to be. I did this by measuring total amount, subtract the amount of space my 6 pearls and 12 rings would take. Then I divided this by 7, the number of chain parts. Then I measured the chain and found out how many I needed, 11.
This is the first one I did

So first you have to count the number of chains, in my case 11

Open number 12

Remove 11 chains

Attach a ready pearl with a ring

Attach the opened chain number 12 to the other end of the pearl, and close

It should look like this

And as you add more, it should look like this

At the start and end you add the type of ending you want

And then I added the charm in the middle in the front

But when I tried it on, it looked... odd
So I decided to add more chain to the sides of the charm

Much better. I LOVE the way it turned out, and I cannot wait to make another soon!
Maybe a matching bracelet, who knows...


  1. Very nice - I love how it turned out!

    1. Thank you :) I do too :) And hopefully I can make some more soon!
