Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut small pieces of chain and attach them to the chevron focal with a jump rings. The lengths I used range from .5" to 1.5", with the longer pieces in the middle of the focal.
Step 2:
Attach a 2" piece of the ring chain to both sides of the chevron focal. Next, attach a 2" piece of the bead chain to the ring chain, and then another 3" piece of ring chain onto the bead chain.
Step 3:
Attach the mini spike charms to the ring chain with jump rings. Finish with a lobster clasp & jump ring.

    This is a very Southwest look. It is so pretty and can be made even more Southwestern with turquois and coral beads and feathers instead of spikes.
