DIRECTIONS:

Using the photo steps at right, assemble the dangles shown by threading the beads onto head pins or eye pins as required. Always open and close the loops by twisting to the side instead of pulling the loop open, this helps keep their round shape. Cut a 20" piece of wire and use a crimp bead to attach one half of the toggle clasp to one end. Thread on the metal beads and dangles as shown. Use a crimp bead to attach the second half of the toggle clasp.

TO FORM A LOOP:

Cut the pin approximately 1/4" beyond the bead. Bend the pin to form a right angle. Use the round end of your pliers to grasp the end of the pin and curve the pin by using a rolling motion to fold it over a single round prong. You may need to release the pin and continue the rolling motion again. You can convert a head pin to an eye pin by snipping off the head and replacing it with a loop as shown above.

USING CRIMP BEADS:

Thread on 1 crimp bead. Slip the wire through the clasp loop and bring the end of the wire back through the crimping bead. Leave about a 1/2" tail and push the crimp snug up to the loop. Squeeze the crimp bead flat using needle nose pliers. Pull to be sure it is secure. Thread the wire back through a couple beads then snip off excess.
