Instructions

step 1
step 1

Slide the jasmine bead cap, pearl and petal bead cap on to a headpin. Attach the headpin to the ring portion of the toggle clasp with a simple wire twisted loop that is large enough to allow movement on the toggle ring.

Watch our wire-twisted loop video for a how-to demonstration by our beading expert.


step 2
step 2

Attach the 3-inch piece of wire next on the toggle ring with a simple wire twist.

Slide a 3mm crystal bicone on to the wire and attach the birch leaf charm with a simple wire-twisted loop.


step 3
step 3
Slide three 3mm crystal bicones, a 4mm bicone, the dragonfly wings metal bead and a 4mm bicone on to a headpin. Complete a simple wire-twisted loop to attach the headpin to the toggle ring.
step 4
step 4

Cut your chain in half. Attach one end of each chain with an oval jumpring to each loop on the toggle ring.

TIP - Use two pliers to open and close jumprings.


step 5
step 5

At this point you can make a shorter necklace by cutting an equal number of links from each chain to your desired length.

Attach an oval jumpring to the end link of one of you chains.


step 6
step 6
Use the last jumpring to attach the lobster claw clasp to the end of your other chain - and you're done.
