Tools Needed:
2 Pairs of Needle Nose Pliers (plset)

Other:
Multi-purpose adhesive such as Bond 527 Cement or E6000
Toothpick
Wet-wipes
Small Cello bag


Step 1:
Prepare the Ball chain. To provide more durability for your ball chain portion of the necklace, place a dab of glue in the crimp connector prior to placing in the ball chain. To do this, use a pair of Basic Round Nose Pliers. Hold one of your Ball Chain Crimp Connectors by the loop. Squeeze out a wee bit of multi-purpose adhesive glue onto a flat surface. Using a toothpick, add the glue into the crimp connector. Place the last ball of the 6.5” of 2.5mm Antique Copper Plated Steel Ball Chain into the crimp connector and squeeze shut with your finger-tips. Using the round nose pliers gently pinch the crimp connector closed. Repeat on the other end of the 2.5mm Antique Copper Plated Steel Ball Chain.


Step 2:
How to Open and Close a Jump Ring. If you know how to open and close a jump ring using two pair of Basic Round Nose Pliers, you are good to go. If you need a tutorial on how to open and close a jump ring, it is super easy. Using your 2 pairs of 5 inch Basic Round Nose Pliers, hold the jump ring at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock with the opening of the jump ring straight up at 12 o’clock. With your right hand and left hand holding the pliers, push the jump ring away from you with your right hand on 3 o’clock and pull toward you with your left hand on 9 o’clock. It sounds confusing, but just try it. To close the jump ring, pull with your left hand on 3 o’clock and push with your right hand on 9 o’clock. You will be opening and closing jump rings in no time.


Step 3:
Assemble the Geometric Necklace. Lay out all of your Nunn Design Findings as shown. Starting with the Lobster Clasp, you will open and close jump rings all away around the necklace. It just doesn’t get any easier than this!
