You will receive everything you need to make the project shown in the picture, including the chain, in the exact colors. You will receive easy to follow instructions with written instructions and well as picture diagrahms. Fire Line and needles are not included but those can be found on the website as well if you need them. For this project you will need tools to make wire wrapped loops and there is not instruction on how to do this, but it would be very easy to YouTube a video on a Basic Wire Wrap or Gallery Wrap to show you how to do this. This necklace is designed to be long but you can shorten the chain to any desired length. Enjoy!
