Step 1: Create Bead Links

Picture of Create Bead Links
With your round nose pliers create beaded links out of 5 of your beads. With your chain nose pliers open the wire loop on the end of one of the beaded links and thread it through the loop on a Safety Pin. Close securely. With your chain nose pliers open the wire loop on the other side of the same beaded link and attach it to a second Safety Pin as shown. Continue to chain together beads and Safety Pins until you have attached all 6 pins with beaded links.

Step 2: Make Bead Drops

Thread a head pin through one of the remaining beads. With your round nose pliers create a loop in the head pin, trimming the excess wire with wire cutters. Set this bead dangle aside. Use the remaining head pins and beads to create 17 more bead dangles.

Step 3: Add Jumprings to Dangles

With your chain nose pliers open a 5 mm jump ring. Thread the jump ring through the loop on one of the bead dangles. Close securely. Repeat until all bead dangles are attached to 5 mm jump rings. Set aside.
