Ceramic Eye Pin Links

Take an eye pin and thread up with:

Putting it all together

Open up one of the jump rings (as they are quite strong, you'll need two sets of pliers) and thread onto it:

  • one of the main eye pin links
  • one of the 4mm crystal drops
  • one of the 6mm crystal drops
  • another main eye pin link

Close the ring securely. Open up another jump ring and thread it through the other end of one of the eye pin links from your first set. Then thread on:

  • one of the 4mm crystal drops
  • one of the 6mm crystal drops
  • another main eye pin link

Close the ring securely. Open up another jump ring and thread it through the other end of one of the previous eye pin link. Then thread on:

  • one of the 4mm crystal drops
  • one of the 6mm crystal drops
  • the centre eye pin link

Close the ring securely. Open up another jump ring and thread it through the other end of the centre eye pin link. Then thread on:

  • one of the 4mm crystal drops
  • one of the 6mm crystal drops
  • another main eye pin link

Close the ring securely. Open up another jump ring and thread it through the other end of the previous eye pin link. Then thread on:

  • one of the 4mm crystal drops
  • one of the 6mm crystal drops
  • another main eye pin link

Close the ring securely. Open up another jump ring and thread it through the other end of the previous eye pin link. Then thread on:

  • one of the 4mm crystal drops

  • one of the 4mm crystal drops
  • one of the 6mm crystal drops

Whilst the ring is still open, thread on one of the lengths of chain. Close securely. Open another jump ring and thread it onto the other end of the first main eye pin link in the necklace. Then thread on:

  • one of the 4mm crystal drops
  • one of the 6mm crystal drops

Whilst the ring is still open, thread on the second length of chain. Close securely. Hold the necklace up to your neck and check the length - cut off any excess chain.

Open up another jump ring and thread it onto the end of one of the lengths of chain. Whilst it is still open, thread on the bar part of the toggle clasp. Close securely. Open up the last jump ring and thread it onto the other end of chain. Whilst it is still open, thread on the flower part of the toggle clasp. Close securely. Your necklace is now ready to wear!
