Step 1: Make Jump Rings
To turn the chain into jump rings, use your chain nose pliers to gently open each chain link and remove it from the chain. Take care to pull one side of the jump ring away from instead of pulling out so that you won't put pressure on the jump ring and cause it to break. Continue until you have created 28 jump rings.
Step 2: Add Clasp and Square Jump Ring
With your chain nose pliers open the square jump ring - remember to use chain nose pliers to pull one side away from your body and one side towards your body - do not pull out. Thread it through the loop at the end of the lobster claw and thread one end through one of the hammered rings. Close the square jump ring securely.
Step 3: Connect Rings
With your chain nose pliers loop one knurled jump ring around two hammered rings. Close securely. Repeat until you have 7 knurled jump rings closed around the two hammered rings. Repeat to attach all hammered rings. Close bracelet by hooking lobster claw around one hammered ring as shown.
