I wanted to make a subtle, sleek design using skulls -- I know, I know, skulls aren't really subtle or sleek. Then I came across our small flat skull charms and HAD to make a skull fringe necklace. You can use 30 to 40 charms and by keeping the necklace chain shorter, the fringe lays nicely. The idea of adding 40 jump rings may seem daunting, but don't worry, it goes by quickly :)

Supplies you’ll need:

30-40 flat skull charms 30-40 3mm jump rings for charms 1 6mm jump ring for clasp 1 3mm jump ring for attaching lobster clasp 1 lobster clasp 16-18" chain

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Gather all supplies including 2 pairs of pliers. I recommend a pair of needle nose and a pair of bent nose.

Step

Step 2

Find the center-point of your chain, loop a 3mm jump through, attach the charm and close the jump ring. Measure down each side of the chain from the center and attach another charm using a 3mm jump ring. Make sure your chain is straight so that the chain links aren't twisted. This will ensure that when you add all of your charms to the chain you are placing the jump rings in the same position.

Step

Step 3

Divide your charms in half and fill in each side with charms, placing them every other chain link. If you have extra charms, add them to the end of your charm rows, repeating the every other chain link placement.

Step 4

Add your clasp to the end of the chain using another 3mm jump ring. Attach the 6mm jump ring to the opposite end for hooking your clasp to.
