Step 1: Make the Briolette Bails Over the Chain Links

1st, snip a piece of red copper wire and silver tone chain;

2nd, thread wire through a red bead, fold it in half and slide the ends through the bottom link;

3rd, with pliers, wrap a loop above bead, and start to cover the briolette. Make sure that you pass loop through the last link on a short piece of chain with at least 18 links before you close the loop;

4th, carefully coil the wire around the beads and repeat process with other the beads.

5th, for every 6 links on the chain, attach a different colored briolette bail.

Step 2: Finish the Handmade Pendant

1st, make two cat eye dangles with head pins and form a loop on top of the bead;

2nd, cut off excess links of the briolette adorned chain, and use a jump ring to collect the pendant and the two cat bead dangles.
