Step-by-Step Instructions:

  Step 1:
With the wire, make two bead links with 14 chrysocolla chips-with each chip separated by a crystal. Make a third bead link with 2 chrysocolla chips & 3 crystals.
  Step 2:
With jump rings, attach your desired length of chain to the top of the links. Attach a lobster clasp & jump ring to the ends of the chain.
  Step 3:
With jump rings, attach the gold focal to the bottom of the links.
  Step 4:
Cut two pieces of chain that are 2 chain links in length. With a jump ring, attach them to the hole in the top of the focal (the same hole that is holding the Chrysocolla links). Attach the y-connector to the bottom of the chain link with jump rings.
Step 5:
Attach the small bead link to the bottom of the y-connector with a jump ring. Attach the spikes to the holes in the bottom of the focal with jump rings- there will be 5 spikes total.

    I’m a big fan of chips & nuggets, and I really like how you have combined them in many of your designs. This one really ‘pops’ with the Chrysocolla paired with the satin gold. Nice piece!
