Step 2:
Link up all of the selected shapes. Put a shape onto an eye pin. Shorten any protruding wire to about 10 mm. Grasp the edge of the protruding pin between the points of the needle nose pliers at the very end of the points. Twist the protruding wire around the point of the pliers.
Delicately bend the wire around the edge of the hole so that a loop is created.

Step 3:
Cut off about 58 cm of chain for the necklace. Start hanging the shapes from the centre of the chain. Use the big shapes first. Use progressively smaller shapes as you approach the edges. Hang one shape from each link in the chain. Decorate about 16 cm of the chain. Shorten one side of the chain by about 6 cm from the end. Open an oval. String a carabiner on it. Suspend the oval on the last link of the chain and close it. Suspend a smaller shape on the last link of the unshortened side of the chain.
