Cheetah Chain Belt Instructions Designed by Teri McCamish
Get fast and funky flair with this hot belt accessory! With touches of Venetian glass beads and satin Hamilton gold-plated chain, you're sure to turn heads with this dramatic look.
Step one: Thread the white 30mm Venetian glass La Crima Ca' d' Oro coin bead onto a 2-inch satin Hamilton gold-plated 20 gauge head pin and finish with a simple loop.
Step two: Thread the white 14mm Venetian glass La Crima Ca' d' Oro round beads onto their own 2-inch satin Hamilton gold-plated 20 gauge eye pins and finish each with a simple loop. Connect each bead together to form a chain.
Step three: Connect one open loop from Step two to the loop of the 30mm coin bead. Connect the remaining open loop to a 12mm satin Hamilton gold-plated 13 gauge open jump ring. Watch our Handy Tip video if you need help with jump rings.
Step four: Attach the jump ring to one end of the Satin Hamilton gold-plated 3+1 oval and twisted oval link chain. Attach another jump ring to a 27x17mm satin Hamilton gold-plated trigger clasp and connect it to the other end of the chain.
