Cut out the section that's underneath (otherwise it will be too thick). Pinch/kneed the seem together so you have one piece. Roll and smooth out to your preferred thickness and cut into a triangle. Use a toothpick to make 2 holes on each end."

Step Three:
"Once you're happy with the shape, place on a baking sheet and bake at 275 for about 20 minutes. While baking cut two pieces of chain to the length you like. When cool, fit the jump rings through the holes, attach the chain and crimp shut. Add jump rings to the end of the chain and finish with a closure clasp."
