So this is a tutorial on how to create the necklace I'm wearing in the image above.
You will need the following:
*Pliers (for jumprings, you can also use tweezers to open them)
*Something to cut the chain (I used the scissors that is already attached to my round nose pliers)
*Necklace chain (The length of yours will depend on how long you want your necklace to hang, but it will be folded afterwards mine was 50cm)
*Thick chain of any kind
You don't have to have the exact type of thick chain I have in the image, any will work as long as you're able to thread the necklace chain into the end of the thick chain.

Please refer to this if you are lost at any point :) I hope this is helpful!
The black line is the necklace chain.
Step 1: Step 1: Measuring the Length of Your Necklace
My measurement was 25cm.
Step 2: Step 2. Double the Length
We are folding it over as the necklace will have two layers of chain.
Step 3: Step 3. Cut!
Step 4: Step 4: Opening Jumprings
Step 5: Step 5: Thread the Chain
Step 6: Step 6: Thread the Other End
Step 7: Step 7. Thread It All the Way Through
Refer to the diagram (Image 2) as this will look the exact same.
Step 8: Step 8. Attach Jumpring and Lobster Clasp
Leave the jumpring still open and add the lobster clasp (img 3)
Step 9: Step 9: Attach Jumpring to Other End of Necklace Chain
Step 10: 10. Hook Either Ends Together
Step 11: 13. Level the Second Chain Up and Adjust
Cut in the middle of the extra necklace chain. If it is too long, cut extra but make sure that both sides are even!
Step 12: Step 12: Attach Loose Chains to Correct Jumpring
(img 2): Unhook the left jumpring
(img 3): Put on the left chain that had just been cut. There will be 3 things dangling off this jump ring, two chains and a clasp. Close shut.
(img 4): Unhook the right jump ring.
(img 5): Put on the right chain that we had just cut. There will be two things dangling from this jumpring, these would be the two chains. Close shut.
(img 6) And we're done!
Step 13: Your Necklace Is Now Complete!
