Look here for home-warming cozies.
Using 2 pairs of chain nose jewelry pliers, remove jump rings and lobster clasp from the ends of your chain necklace & set aside. Measure chain to desired length—we chose 18 inches. Use pliers to open link at end of measurement & remove excess chain.
Using 6mm jump rings, connect toggle and clasp to the ends of chain, as shown.
For charms that won't accommodate jump rings, use head pins to create connectors. Slide pin through bottom of charm, using the head of pin as a stop. Use pliers to bend into a loop, wrap the tail around the loop a couple of times, & trim excess.
To create the button strands, connect an assortment of buttons, charms and decorative findings with 6mm, 12mm and 15mm jump rings (you will use various sizes to fit different buttonholes and to vary your placement).
To begin assembling necklace, place chain on jewelry stand (optional). Use a 6mm jump ring to connect a dangle charm to centermost link.
Continue adding dangle charms at evenly spaced intervals. Keep your overall design visually balanced.
To create the multi-layered look, continue adding charms and baubles until you've reached the desired fullness. Also, you can fill any small gaps with single buttons—simply connect them to chain links with jump rings.
