Quantity of Materials Needed


33" of Gold Plated Chain
10 Gold Color 20ga Headpins
1 Gold Plated 4mm Jump Ring
1 Gold Plated 13x7 Lobster Claw Clasp
10 26x18mm Lampwork Beads

Instructions.


1) Take your Carbide Cutters and cut the fifth link away from the end of the length of chain (33" of gold plated chain). Take one Headpin (10 gold color 20ga headpins) and flush-cut the flat head away from the rest of the wire. Make a wrapped loop with one end of the cut Headpin wire, making sure to attach the loop to the length of chain that you cut away (this length of chain should be four links long).

2) Thread one Lampwork Bead (26x18mm lampwork beads) onto the wire from the previous step, and make a wrapped loop with the remaining wire. Attach this loop to the other length of chain.

3) Repeat steps #1 and #2 until you have 10 beads attached with eleven 4-link chain lengths in-between.

To Finish.
4) Open the Jump Ring with your Chain nose and Round nose Pliers, and use it to attach the Lobster Claw Clasp (gold plated 13x7 lobster caw clasp) to the last link in the last length of chain attached. Make sure to close this Jump Ring securely.
