How to make:

4.Feed both of the long ends of beading wire through the last link at the end of a 20cm piece of chain.

5.Begin threading your seed beads onto one of the lengths of beading wire. I find it easiest to pour the small seed beads onto a beading mat and use the end of the beading with to pick them up like a needle. Once you have 15cm of beads, use a bead stopper, piece of washi tape or a clip to stop them coming off.

7.Remove the bead stopper or tape from the first wire, then take both beading wires through the other end of your chain, followed by a necklace end and crimp. Squash the crimp as before.

8.Thread  the open hook on one of the necklace ends through the small loop on a trigger clasp and then form into a a teardrop shape with your pilers. Squeeze the two cups together to cover the crimp.
