Golden Waterfall Necklace

This elegant necklace will shine with the cascading gold strands and pretty citrine colored beads. 
Materials: about 90" of chain, teardrop faceted beads, headpins, eyepins, jump rings, clasp, bent nose pliers, round nose pliers, and wire cutters. 
Cut a piece of chain to fit like a choker, about 15". Cut the remaining chain into eighteen pieces, each 4" long. 
Thread a bead onto an eyepin, and another onto a headpin. Bend the ends to a right angle, and trim excess. 
Form the loop of the headpin bead and before closing, attach it to the eyepin bead. Form the loop of the eyepin bead. 
Before closing the loop, attach a piece of chain. 
Repeat for the other seventeen pieces of chain. 
Find the center of the long piece of chain. I marked it with a bit of excess wire to make it easy. It will be removed after the necklace is finished. 
Attach a chain-bead dangle to the long piece of chain with a jump ring. 
Attach a dangle to every other link of the chain. 
Attach the clasp to the ends of the chain with jump rings. 
All finished!
Enjoy!
Xoxo, Alyssa
