Project Instructions

Using the jump rings, connect the Bead Landing™ metal mania charms into your desired configuration.  

Deconstruct the Bead Landing™ metal mania chain into chain and charm link sections.   

Place and eye pin through one of the large mother of pearl disk beads. At the opposite end, bend the pin to form a right angle. Cut the pin approximately ¼" beyond the bead. Use the round end of your pliers to grasp the end of the pin and curve the pin by using a rolling motion to fold it over a single round prong. You may need to release the pin and continue the rolling motion again. Be sure to start rolling from the end of the pin. This will give you a good round loop and sturdy connection. Repeat 9 times with each large disk bead. 

Place and eye pin through 3 small mother of pearl disk beads. At the opposite end bend the pin to form a right angle. Cut the pin approximately ¼" beyond the bead. Use the round end of your pliers to grasp the end of the pin and curve the pin by using a rolling motion to fold it over a single round prong. You may need to release the pin and continue the rolling motion again. Be sure to start rolling from the end of the pin. This will give you a good round loop and sturdy connection. Repeat 8 times with each 3 bead sections.   

Connect 4 sections of large disk beads and chain charm sections together. Alternating with bead and charm. Carefully open the eye pin on the ends of the beads with a jewelry pliers and place the charm into the opening. Close the eye pin securely with a jewelry pliers. Attach one end of the length to the left side of the previously made charm configuration with a jump ring.  

Connect the other 6 large disk bead sections and chain charm sections together in the same manner as the previous sections. Attach this section to the right side of the previously made charm configuration with a jump ring.

Attach 3 sections of small disk beads together alternating with the deconstructed chain sections. Carefully open the eye pins with a jewelry pliers and place a chain section in between each bead section. Attach this length to the left side of the preciously made charm configuration with a jump ring.   

Connect the remaining 5 small mother of pearl disk sections to the chain alternating the bead sections and the chain links. Attach this length to the right side of the preciously made charm configuration with a jump ring.

Join the individual lengths of bead and chain sections not attached to the charm configuration at their ends with a jump ring.  

Place a lobster claw onto the one of the jump rings.
