Take a big jump ring and put all the chains into it. There is no specific order of doing this, but alternating between gold and black will give the best look.

Close the jump ring and tighten it with the long noose plier. Do this only for one side.

You will now have a bunch of chains secured in a ring on one side and lose on the other side.

Start twisting the chain as shown in the picture. Do this till the end.

Do not worry if it does not look very uniform; the uneven look is exactly what we are trying to achieve.

For those who prefer an even look, you can twist the chains into a braid.

Once you’re done twisting the length of the chains, quickly secure the other end with a jump ring. Do not forget to tighten it with the pliers.

It should look like this.

Take the rhinestone line and attach a small jump ring as shown in the picture. Tighten it.

Using the same jump ring, attach the rhinestone onto the twisted neckpiece. Wind the rhinestones around the braid till the end. Attach it with another jump ring.

Take two big rings and attach it on both ends of the neckpiece. The last step is to put the lobster hook. Remember ladies, the hook is always on the right hand side. Using the plier slip the hook into the ring and tighten.
