Using eyepins from the findings kit, begin by making all of the links and heart charms - see image.
Leaving 1 cm at the top of the pin above the bead, trim off excess with wire cutters.
Right at the top of the bead, bend the pin 45 degrees using round nose pliers (picture 1).
Using the Round Nose Pliers, grip the end of the pin and turn round into a loop (picture 2).
Choose one of the 6mm rounds and place it inside the bead frame. Align the holes of the bead with that of the bead frame and pass an eyepin through both frame and bead. Turn a second eye as previously on the links. Repeat for the second bead frame.
Cut 2 pieces of chain 20cm long and a further 5 pieces at 2.5cm long.
Add a jump ring to one end of a 20cm length of chain. Repeat for the 2nd length of 20cm chain, this time adding a lobster clasp before closing.
Add a jump ring to the opposite end of a 20cm length of chain, adding one of the bead frame links just made before closing. Repeat for the 2nd length of 20cm chain. Add a further jump ring to the underside of each bead frame link.
Choose 6 of the links (ignoring the heart charms) made in the first step and join them all together using jump rings. Add a further jump ring to each end of the length of links just made. Attach each end to the jump ring on the underside of each bead frame link.
Using the remaining 5 links (ignoring the heart charms) made in the 1st step and the 5 lengths of 2.5cm chain form another length using jump rings as in step 6. Add a further jump ring to each end of the length of links just made. Attach each end to the jump ring on the underside of each bead frame link.
Add a jump ring to each heart charm. On one side of the necklace, skip 5 links of chain above one of the bead frame links and attach the charm. Skip a link and add another charm using a jump ring. Again skip a link and add another charm.
Add the last 3 charms (on the opposite side of the necklace) to one of the 2.5cm links added.

"Just used my new kumihimo handle and weighted bobbins and they are great. My kumihimo has never been so neat and the thread/ weave so tight. It's great."
