Make a mobius spiral using 5 large jump rings.
To complete the pendant, take one of the smaller jump rings and loop it through the five rings. Close it nice and tight with the pliers. You can add a second small ring on if you'd like.
Loop a tiny jump ring onto one end of the chain, and then loop it through the ring on the end of your clasp. Close the ring so it is nice and secure. String on the pendant, making sure to go through the small jump rings so that the pendant hangs down.
Once it is strung on, loop another tiny jump ring on the other end of the chain and close it. Loop a small jump ring through the tiny one and close. (This is where you will hook on the clasp.)
