Designer Tips

  • This 24.5"" necklace uses 26 twisty bar connectors. Adjust the finished length of the piece by adding or subtracting connectors.
  • Connect all components together using sterling jump rings. For best way to open and close jump rings, twist sideways (see Jump Ring Hint in Jewelry Basics 101 PDF).
  • Each connector has one smaller and one larger loop. For best results, connect the small loop on one link to the large loop on the next link.
