Step one: Thread one Swarovski 6mm mini round bead in Siam onto one 1.5 inch antique brass-plated 23 gauge eye pin and finish it with a simple loop. This will create a "mini bead link." Repeat this step twenty three more times.
Step two: Connect five mini bead links together to form a chain. Repeat once and then set these mini bead link chains aside.
Step three: With the trinity link positioned with the single circle at the bottom (pointing downward), attach one mini bead link to the left stringing hole of one Kabela Design antique brass trinity link. Then, connect a new mini bead link to the right stringing hole of the trinity link. Repeat once.
Step four: Position a third trinity link between the other two and use the free mini bead links to connect them all together.
Step five: Cut two strands of brass oxide textured oval cable chain approximately 5 1/2 inches long. Attach the hook portion of the antique brass-plated brass pointy leaf hook & eye clasp to one end of one chain using one 4.5mm antique brass-plated 21 gauge open jump ring. Attach the eye portion of the clasp to one end of the other chain using a new jump ring. Connect each chain to either end of the 3-link piece created in the steps above. Watch our Handy Tip video if you need help with jump rings.
Step six: Attach a new mini bead link to the bottom stringing hole on the center trinity link. Connect a new trinity link to the open loop of this mini bead link, to the single circle's stringing hole so that the trinity link points upward.
Step seven: Attach a new mini bead link to each bottom stringing hole on the trinity link from the step above.
Step eight: Connect a new trinity link to the mini bead links from the step above. This trinity link should point downward.
Step nine: Repeat steps seven through nine for the left and right trinity links attached to the strands of cable chain.
Step ten: Attach a new mini bead link to the open stringing hole on the trinity link from the step above.
Step eleven: Connect one new trinity link, pointed upward, to the center mini bead link from Step nine.
Step twelve: Attach one of the mini bead link chains from Step one to the left stringing hole of the center trinity link from the step above. Connect the open end of the mini bead link chain to the left trinity link (which points downward).
Step thirteen: Repeat Step twelve for the right side of the center trinity link from Step eleven.
