STEP #1 - Lay out design and arrange the charms beads in the order you want them to be on the necklace.

STEP #2 - Cut wire in 2-3 inch lengths.

STEP #3 - Attach a charm on one end of the wire with a wrapped loop connection. Add beads on to the wire then make wrapped loops on the other end of the wire.

STEP #4 – Make some of the charms by threading the organic beads onto headpins and finish by making a wrapped loop on the opposite end of the head pin.

STEP #5 - Adding jump rings to some of the wrapped loops and purchased charms can add movement to your charms before you assemble them onto the chocker.

STEP #6 - Begin to assemble the charms on the necklace chocker by threading the wrapped loop charms on the chocker.

STEP #7 - Use spacers, beads or other charms in between the wrapped loop charms.
