To create metal charms, glue small metal objects on top of larger metal objects, using a small amount of glue to one surface. Use tip of bottle to spread adhesive. Press surfaces together for several seconds until bonded. Avoid skin contact.
Insert 3-inches of wire at the top of a charm and twist in the middle. Wind ends of wire around small paintbrush, pressing ends tightly with pliers. Pull off of paintbrush. Attach to chain with jump ring.
Repeat step 2 to attach charms to chains, spreading evenly apart.
Attach smaller 3-inch chain to larger 4-inch chain, end to end.
