1 x Mini Key Rring

1 x Pack Silver Plated Fancy Chain

1 x Pack Silver Plated Jump Rings

1 x Pack Silver Plated Headpins

1 x Pewter Dove Charm

3 x Silver Plated Leaf Charms

1 x Large White Millefoire Glass Bead

1 x Pink Rectangle Millefoire Glass Bead

1 x White Rectangle Millefoire Glass Bead

2 x Rose 8mm Swarovski Crystal Xilion Beads

1 x Pink Foiled Swirl Penny Bead

Tools Required: Chain Nose Pliers, Side Cutters, Round Nose Pliers, Split Ring Pliers (optional)


1. Begin by attaching the mini key ring to the trigger clasp - you may find it easier to use a pair of Split Ring Pliers to open the mini key ring - it saves your nails!

2. Next cut three different lengths of the fancy chain - you can make the handbag charm as long and dangly as you like!

3. Take the three different lengths of chain and add them to the mini key ring - again you may find it easier to use Split Ring Pliers to do this.

4. Finally add all the beads and charms to the chain using the jump rings and headpins - to add the beads you'll need to thread them onto the headpins and then use your Round Nose Pliers to create wire wrapped loops which you can attach to the chain before you finish...

Voila! Pop it on your bag and wait for the complements!
