*only 1 of the “o” piece is needed. You will need 1 “T” piece for each focal piece you want to make
Assorted Beads/Charms

1. Cut the cable chain to approximately 30” and using a small piece of wire, attach it to the “o” piece of the toggle clasp. *optional: you can cut the chain any length, depending on the look you want. If the length is too short to fit over your head, you need to cut the chain in half and attach one end to the “o” piece of the toggle and the other end to a lobster clasp. This enables you to fasten the necklace around your neck with a clasp.


2. Attach a 2” piece of cable chain to the “T” piece of the toggle clasp. Using wire, head pins, or jump rings, attach assorted beads and charms to the chain. This piece is the focal piece of your necklace, so you can design it any way you want J Connect this piece to the “O” toggle piece on the necklace and now it’s ready to wear!!!


3. Make several more “focal pieces” to attach to different “T” pieces. Now you can change the look of your necklace to compliment your outfit or your mood!!!
