What You’ll Need:

There are a lot of tiny pieces involved, so it’s a good idea to stay organized.

Using pliers, bend a split ring and loop through it the end of the lobster clasp. Then, add the lobster clasp to the end of chain, securing the split ring by squeezing it closed with the pliers.
Use the safety pin to make a small hole in the shark’s fin. Loop a split ring through the hole and squeeze the ring closed again. Repeat this step using as many shark figurines as you’d like!
With split rings attached to the sharks’ fins, they become the perfect little charms. Loop the rings through the links in the chain, and voilà!— a necklace that’s absolutely ‘fin-tastic’!
