Step by Step
Cut 34 lengths of wire each 35mm long. Using round nosed pliers, roll one end round for about 1 ½ turns. Bend over at a 90 degree angle, put on the bead, then roll the other end round as far as you can till it touches the bead. Add a 6mm jump ring to one end. Do this 34 times to give 34 beaded links.
Make a chain linking the jump ring from one link to the wire of the next. Do this until you have nine bead links then add a jump-ring to the final end. Make two link chains like this.
Add one of the end jump-rings to the large toggle on the charm. Repeat this with the other link chain.
Cut two 15cm metal chain. Add one to each of the jump-rings at the end of the link chain not attached to the charm. Add a lobster clasp, with a jump-ring to one end.
To make the extender chain, cut a 45mm length of chain from the findings pack and attach to the other end of the metal chain with a jump-ring. Use the remaining beaded link and add to the other end of the extender chain. Thread a headpin through a textured pearl and make a simple loop, and attach to the free end of the peal link.
Repeat stage 2, but with 15 bead-links, with a jump-ring at other end.
Link the end jump-rings to the ones on the other link chain which are attached to the chain.
