Step one: Cut a 4 3/4-inch length of 6.5x4.6mm stainless steel curb chain. Add a TierraCast 14mm antique pewter rivoli frame link to one end using a bright silver anodized aluminum 7.5mm 18 gauge open jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see our Handy Tip Video.
Step two: Attach two jump rings to the end of the infinity link. Attach two jump rings to these two jump rings. Connect another infinity link to these jump rings using two more jump rings. Repeat this step four times for a total of six infinity links.
Step three: Glue the Swarovski 14mm Peridot rivoli into the TierraCast 14mm antique pewter rivoli frame link and allow to dry. Attach two jump rings to the end of the last infinity link in your chain. Attach two jump rings to those jump rings. Connect the rivoli setting to the chain using one jump ring. Make a mirror image of the jump ring and infinity link pattern on the other side of the necklace. Attach it to the other end of the chain using one jump ring.
