Project Instructions

Punch a small hole with the metal hole punch, in the center of a Bead Landing™ Found Objects™ gear.

Place a metal flower onto a head pin and feed the head pin through the hole in the gear.

Bend the pin to form a right angle. Cut the pin ¼" beyond the beads. 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.

Before closing the loop, place three short lengths of chain onto the loop.

Adorn the three lengths of chain with your choice of Bead Landing™ Found Objects™ charms and beaded head pins.

Punch a small hole on one side of the gear with the flower attached. Feed a jump ring through the hole.

From this point on, make a 6" length of beaded eye pins, Bead Landing™ Found Objects™ charms, keyhole charms and safety pins.

Punch a small hole into the center of another Bead Landing™ Found Objects™ gear.

Place a clockface, and clock hands onto an eye pin and feed the eye pin through the hole in the gear.

Bend the eye pin to a right angle and trim to ¼". Roll the end with round nose pliers to form a loop.

Punch another small hole in the right side of the gear.

Feed a jump ring through the hole.

Wire the two decorated gears together with some wire.

Make another chain of Bead Landing™ Found Objects™ charms, keyhole charms and safety pins. Attach to the remaining jump ring.

Attach two 3" lengths of Bead Landing™ chain to the ends of each section that was made with the charms, Found Objects™ and safety pins.

Attach a jump ring to one chain length and a lobster claw to the other chain length.
