How to Get Started with Chain and Charms

Print this Learning Center Idea

STEP ONE: choosing charms and beads

Choose from our wide selection of charms and beads.

STEP TWO: choosing chains and clasps

Select the clasp and chain you would like to use in your design.

STEP THREE: choosing the findings

Select the open jump rings and head pins and eye pins for your design.

STEP FOUR: choosing tools

It is easier to open and close a jump ring with two chain nose pliers when you attach a charm or a small pendant. You will also need round nose pliers to make a loop for the head pin or eye pin if you don't have a bail and a cutter. Select the tools that will work best for your design. A Chain Sta is a very useful tool to keep the chain in place when you attach your charm or dangles.


STEP FIVE: assemble your design

Be sure to check out our video that provides helpful tips on using jump rings. For making dangles, you will need to make a single loop or a wrapped loop.
