  • Cut two 50cm lengths of silver beading wire.
  • Holding the two lengths evenly together, thread a silver crimp onto the wires. Using the round nose pliers to form a loop, push the ends of the wires back through the crimp and gently pull the longer lengths of the wires until the loop is 3mm in diameter. Squeeze the crimp with flat nose pliers to secure the loop. Cut off excess wire leaving a small end. This will be pushed into the first bead and will not be seen.
  • Thread the first bead onto both wires and pull to the loop end of the wires and secure with a crimp using flat nose pliers.
  • Part the wires, thread a glass bead onto one wire and a faceted glass bead onto the other. Then thread a crimp over both wires and squeeze crimp with the flat nose pliers.
  • Repeat stage 4. Then thread a button onto one wire. Then thread a crimp over both wires and squeeze crimp with the flat nose pliers.
  • Repeat stages 4 and 5 for the required length.
  • Finish by threading one bead over both wires, create a loop using the same process as in stage 2.
  • Open one jump ring and attach to one loop and close. Open the other jump ring, add the trigger clasp and then attach to the other loop and close.

    Hobbycraft Content Marketing Assistant, I'm in love with all things craft, vintage and floral. I spend my spare time visiting craft fairs in the south on the look out for something that's a little bit different. When not out exploring by foot I'm on my bike riding around the country side or down by the beach.
