Step 1: Use cutters to cut two pieces of chain with each piece consisting of 1 oval link and 1 round link.



Step 2: Use the Metal-Punch Pliers to punch 1 hole in the top center of the oval link of 1 chain piece.



Step 3: Use the Metal-Punch Pliers to punch six holes evenly-spaced along the bottom third of the round link.



Step 4: Attach 1 ear wire to the hole punched in the oval link.



Step 5: Use 2" of Chrysoprase wire to string 1 crimp tube and the first hole in the bottom of the round link. Pass through the crimp tube again, forming a small ring of wire, and crimp. Trim the wire ends.



Step 6: Use 2" of Copper wire and the second hole of the round link to repeat Step 5.



Step 7: Use 2" of Black Onyx wire and the third hole of the circle link to repeat Step 5.



Step 8: Repeat Steps 5-7 using the fourth, fifth, and sixth holes in the round link. Cover every crimp tube with 1 crimp cover.
