Start by using side cutters to cut the 0.3mm wire to 6cm lengths.
Now you are ready to attach your briolettes to your chain with the 5mm sterling silver jump rings. In order to get as even length as possible between each briolette, start by attaching the briolettes from the bottom of the chain then working your way up. As you have an even number of briolettes attach one to the left and one to the right of the longest part of the chain then work up attaching five to the left and five to the right of the longest part of the chain until they are all attached. Use flat nose or snipe nose pliers to open and close your 5mm sterling silver jump rings. For tips on opening and closing jump rings neatly click here.
There you have it, a beautiful handmade necklace ideal for a unique present that no-one else will have.
