Technique

STEP 1 Take one head pin and thread one bead cap and one 10mm bead. Create beaded-dangles by trimming the pin 1cm from the bead and using your round nose pliers create a loop. Repeat this step eight times so you have in total nine beaded-dangles.

STEP 2 Take the 35 link-chain (you can cut it to size after this step). *Now take one 6mm jump ring and thread the top of the tassel and one beaded-dangle from step 1** and attach to the second link of the chain.

STEP 3 Take another 6mm jump ring and thread the top of one setting and attach to the chain two links down from the tassel. You will be attaching items every second link.

STEP 4 Repeat step 2 from * to ** and attach to the chain two links down from the setting.

STEP 5 Repeat step 3 & step 4 seven times. You should have one link remaining on your chain.

STEP 6 Take one eye pin and thread one 8mm bead. Create a beaded-connector by trimming the pin 1cm from the bead and using your round nose pliers to create a loop. Repeat this step ten times so you have in total eleven beaded-connectors.

STEP 7 Create a beaded-chain by using 6mm jump ring to join up the eleven beaded-connectors from step 6.

STEP 8 Take one 8mm jump ring and thread one end of the chain with charms (step 5) and the end of the beaded-chain from step 7. Now take one more 8mm jump ring and thread the other ends of the chains.

STEP 9 Take one 6mm jump ring and thread the clasp and attach it to the left 8mm jump ring. Now take one more 6mm jump ring and attach the heart charm to the same 8mm jump ring. Take two 8mm jump rings and create a chain by joining them together and attach to the 8mm jump ring on the right side.
