Technique

1. Take one eye pin and thread the heart bead. Create a beaded connector by trimming the eye pin 1cm from the bead and making a loop. Take one 6mm jump ring and thread the bottom loop of the lobster swivel clasp and one end of the 7 links of chain. Take one more 6mm jump ring and thread the other side of the chain and the newly formed heart beaded connector. Take the last 6mm jump ring thread the other side of the heart beaded connector and the dragonfly pendant.

2. Take one head pin and thread 1 x 3mm spacer bead, 1 x daisy spacer and 1 x 6x8mm rondelle. Trim 1cm from the last bead and form a loop. Before closing the loop attach to the first link of chain at the top. Repeat this step 3 more times but attached the beaded dangles to the third, fifth and seventh link of chain.

3. Take one head pin and thread 1 x seed bead, 1 x bicone, 1 x flower cup and 1 x 3mm spacer bead. Trim 1cm from the last bead and form a loop. Before closing the loop attach to the 2nd link of chain. Repeat this step two more times but attach the beaded dangles to the forth and sixth link of chain.

4. Take 7x head pin and place on each head pin one 4x6mm rondelle. Trim each head pin 1cm from the bead and start to form a loop. Before closing attach one dangle to each link of chain on the opposite side of the attached beaded dangles.
