Step 1 Cut two 6" lengths of Bead Landing™ chain with chain cutters.
Step 2 Join the two strands of chain on each end with a jump ring.
Step 3 Before closing the jump rings, attach each end of the chain length to one end of the Bead Landing™ specialty findings connectors as shown.
Step 4 Place a pearl onto a head pin. 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.
Step 5 Before closing the loop, place the beaded head pin, created in Step 4, onto the chain.
Step 6 Continue the above procedure for every crystal and pearl that is attached to the chain.
Step 7 Cut approximately 20 lengths of chain and rhinestone chain into 2"-4" lengths.
Step 8 Attach the lengths from Step 7 amongst the pearls and crystals with jump rings.
Step 9 Fill in the fullness with as many beads and chain as needed.
Step 10 Attach two lengths of chain to the remaining loops on the Bead Landing™ specialty finding connectors.
Step 11 Attach a lobster claw clasp to one side of the necklace chain.
