INSTRUCTIONS

The Tassel

Cut the nickel thin twisted chain into four equal lengths of 25cm each. Open the eye on the eye pin and thread the centre link of each of the pieces through the wire of the eyepin, then close the eye tightly. Thread the other end of the eye pin through the open end of the fairy skirt bead cap and pull tight. Leaving a space of 10mm, cut the excess off the eye pin. Twirl the end using your twirly wirlies.

The Bail

Join the tassel to the extra large butterfly scarf bail with a 6mm jumping then set aside.

The Necklace

By opening the links of the 20mm patterned rectangular link chain, make 3 sections that are:

  • 1 x 28 links
  • 1 x 29 links
  • 1 x 30 links

Open up one of the 8mm jump rings and gather the three sections of chains together. Open a second 8mm jumping and join to the first, then loop through the loop at the bottom of your fancy parrot clasp. Close securely.

Open another of the 8mm jump rings and gather the other end the three chains together. Close securely. Open another 8mm jumping and join to this last one, then close securely.

Thread the extra large bail with tassel attached on and your necklace is now ready to wear!
