Step 6
Determine the finished length of your necklace (mine is 16 3⁄4 in./.43m). Measure the component section (mine is 7 in./.18m) and subtract it from the desired length. Divide that measurement in half and cut two pieces of chain to that length. Attach a jump ring to the end link of each piece of chain. Attach each chain section to opposite sides of the component section as shown.
