What You'll Need:
1 metal snap comb
1 jump ring
7 inches nylon line
12 crimp beads
6 round iridescent beads, 2mm
3 round iridescent beads, 4mm
2 pink faceted beads, 2mm
1 iridescent faceted bead, 5mm
1 head pin
Step 1: Using needle-nose pliers, attach a jump ring to the bottom left hole of the snap comb so that the teeth of the comb face to the right.
Step 2: Follow the instructions on page 5 to attach the nylon line to the jump ring with a crimp bead.
Step 3: String on another crimp bead, and crimp down 1/2 inch from the first crimp bead.
Step 4: Next, string a 2mm iridescent bead, a 4mm iridescent bead, another 2mm iridescent bead, and a crimp bead, and slide them up until they touch the previous crimp bead. Crimp snugly in place.
Step 5: String on another crimp bead, and crimp down 1/2 inch from the last crimp bead.
Step 6: String on a pink faceted bead and another crimp bead and slide them up until they touch the other crimp bead. Crimp down.
Step 7: Repeat steps 3 through 6.
Step 8: Repeat steps 3 and 4 again, and then set this piece aside until step 10.
Step 9: String the last crimp bead onto the nylon line, sliding it up so it is 1/2-inch from the previous bead grouping. Before you crimp down, thread the end of the nylon line through the charm and back through the crimp bead. Crimp down, and trim the excess line.
