Directions
 

Cut off 1 foot of chain.
Take a head pin and string on a seed bead, a frog bead and then 2 more seed beads. Wire wrap to the middle of the chain.
Take a head pin and string on a dice bead and then 2 seed beads. Keeping 3 links of chain in between, wire wrap to the left of the frog.
Repeat to the right of the frog.
Take a head pin and string on a seed bead, a heart bead, and then 2 more seed beads. Keeping 3 links of chain in between, wire wrap to the side of the dice bead.
Repeat to the other dice bead.
Take an eye pin and attach a bell to the eye. String on a star bead and then 2 seed beads. Keeping 3 links of chain in between, wire wrap to the side of the heart bead. Repeat to the other heart bead.
On the end of the chain attach an EZ lobster claw clasp. Repeat to the other end of the chain.
When attaching to the handle of a purse (you can also attach it to your belt strap on your pants), the ends of the chain should overlap, so that each lobster claw clasp can connect directly onto one of the links of the chain on either side. This will allow you to adjust the overall length as needed and provide a little extra security by having 2 catch points.
