Step 1

Step 2

Cut your chain to your desired length, making sure you can fit the chain over your head. Alternatively, you could attach a clasp to the end, the choice is yours. 

Thread a bead on to the headpin, followed by the bead cap. 

Step 3

Use round nose pliers to make a loop in the headpin and attach to the center of your chain. 

To form the cluster of beads on your chain, you will need to attach the headpin to both sides of your necklace, 

Step 4

Create as many beads to hang from the chain to create the cluster affect. Add a bead onto the end of your chain, if you have made the chain long enough to fit over your head, you can open one of the links in the chain to attach them together. Alternatively, add your desired clasp.
