Step 1

Begin by ensuring your pins are straight.

Once you are happy with your pins, thread one through the first hole at the top of the Infinity Connector.

Add a 10mm Glass Pearl and a 4mm spacer bead to the pin and pass though the second hole, as in the image below.

Step 1

Step 2

Trim the remainder of the pin to approx. 10mm.

Bend the 10mm remainder at a 90 degree angle and turn a loop using your round noise pliers.

New beaders can find an excellent video tutorial on how to turn a loop HERE.

Step 3

Repeat steps 1 & 2 on the other side of the Infinity Connector.

Step 4

Using a further pin, pass through the centre hole of the Infinity Connector.

Add a 10mm Shimmer Bead and a 4mm spacer bead to the pin.

Step 1

Step 5

Again, trim the remainder of the pin to approx. 10mm.

Bend the 10mm remainder at a 90 degree angle and turn a loop using your round noise pliers.

Step 6

Measure the chain and separate 2 lengths by opening the links of the chain as if it were a jump ring. We used 2 pieces measuring 320mm each.

New beaders can find an excellent video tutorial on how to use jump rings HERE.

Using one of the links just opened, connect a length of chain to one of the eyes created above the Infinity Connector.

Attach the second piece of chain on the same manner.

Step 1

Step 7

Using a jumpring, attach the Cotton Feather to the loop below the Shimmer Bead.

Step 1

Step 8

Using a jump ring, attach the Lobster Clasp to one of the lengths of chain.

Step 1

Step 9

Attach a jump ring to the other length of chain and it's ready to show off to your friends!
