Designer Tips

  • Cut two 8" pieces of chain.
  • Using your oval jump rings, attach one piece of chain to each side of your connector. For most secure way way to open and close jump rings, see Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF).
  • Attach your lobster clasp to one end of your chain, and a jump ring to the other end.
  • Cut a 6" piece of wire, and wrap one end tightly around one side of your connector several times (use your needle nose pliers to gently smoosh the wire to keep it from sliding).
  • Slide on three seed beads, one strawberry quartz bead, and three more seed beads and repeat wrap on other side of connector to finish.
