Instructions on making the custom necklace:
Step 1: make the balloon with chain and 24mm bead
1st, break the chain into 25~30 pieces of 5~6-link segments;
2nd, open a medium-sized jumpring and string 6 pieces of chain segments. Close the jumpring then;
3rd, open a small-sized jumpring, add 2 pieces of chain segments to each of the existed 6 chains;
4th, connect the newly added 12 chain segments two by two as picture shows;
5th, add one new chain segment onto each jumpring;
6th, place the selected 24mm bead in the center of net. Take a headpin, string the 6mm bead, then pass through the 24mm bead and the first added jumpring. Make a simple loop at top. Now, the balloon part is finished.
Step 2: Make the basket underneath with chain and metal European bead
1st, cut 4 pieces of 18-link chain segments;
2nd, pass the chain through the hole of metal European bead and string the first and last chain link by using another medium-sized jumpring. Repeat the same processes with rest three chain strands.
Step 3: Connect the balloon and basket
Open the last chain link on balloon and hook on the jumpring added in step 2 evenly.
Step 4: Add the pendant to a chain
Measure a long piece of chain around your neck. Then, open the loop on top of balloon and attach onto the center of chain.
