About this design:

As I was trying to untangle this chain when it arrived in our shop I held it up, realizing that I should make a necklace that looked just like that! The inner chain is just 3" shorter that the outer allowing the 2 to lay nicely together around your neck.

The products in this design are listed below.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
on each side of your necklace, combine the 2 ends of teardrop chain and 1 end of the delicate figaro being used to go around the back of your necklace.
Step 2:
Add a lobster clasp at the back for your closure. I added an extra teardrop charm from the chain for a little extra embellishment.
