Step 5 Step 5 - String wire through spikes  ¶ 

  • Insert one end of the wire into one of the four holes of the spikes.

  • Insert the other end of the wire into the hole diagonally across from it.

Step 6 Step 6 - Prepare the pearl rosary strands  ¶ 

  • Take your pearl rosary and count off 7 pearls.

  • Use the flat plier to gently open the loop after the seventh pearl to create a strand of 7 pearls. Close the loop.

    • Repeat this process with the rest of the chain. You should have 7 strands.

    • TIP: You can use your round nose pliers to neatly close the ends of each strand. Simply insert the pier into the loop and gently twist it closed.

Step 7 Step 7 - Create and attach the pearl tassel  ¶ 

  • Add the 7 strands onto the jump ring and close the ring.

  • Grab your tassel pendant that you created, thread both ends of the wire through the jump ring.

  • Twist the wire around to hold your tassel pendant in place just beneath the spikes.

  • Take both ends of your wire and wrap the remainder around itself between the jump ring and spike. It's okay if it's messy! This is Punk!

Made this in a flash! There was a lot of extra chain (I'm 5'2''.) .so I shortened it. Plenty of compliments of compliments today.

Take the extra time to keep the chain straight. Measure it carefully;, After assembly, it's not easy to take the necklace apart to change the length.

This was tricky. I made a couple of slight modifications. And now I'm not sure I love how mine turned out. Hmm...

I wasn't too sure about this one, but ended up loving it. I was able to shorten the chain--kept it for another project.

The glue dot doesn't have the strongest hold--someone with a larger head than mine went to put it on and knocked the 2 spikes askew. Easy enough to put back in place, but it has happened again once or twice. Not a big deal, but annoying.

Love this necklace! I kept it really long so it could be more easily layered with other long necklaces...but I loved making the tassel!
