  • Step 1

    Start with a ring of 6 speks. Wrap the chain around the ring until there are 3 speks on each side. The speks will interlock.

  • Step 2

    Add a spek to the center and you’re good to go!

  • Step 3

    Build out your base layer by adding to the hexagon until 3 sides have 15 alternating color speks.

  • Step 4

    Repeat the process for the rest of your layers, making the longest side shorter by 1 each time.

  • Keep going...

    I believe in you.

  • ...and going.

    whew.

  • Step 5

    Line up your layers so the speks interlock and fold the smaller one over the large. They’ll snap into place.

  • Quick tip.

    If your speks don’t interlock - try flipping one of the layers over.

  • Step 6

    keep stacking those layers and you’ve just made a pyramid outta speks!

  • Nice.
