Step by step:

Gather supplies

Glamour-ice

Gather supplies as per shopping list You will also need: - glue (optional) - 2 pairs of pliers, at least one ring nose - wire snips - fine beading needle (optional - if you don’t have any of these, you can lightly coat the end of the thread in glue to stiffen it and stop it unravelling)

1 - Necklace - getting started

Glamour-ice

Cut chain to 50cm Attach jump ring and clasp to one end Cut thread to 120cm Tie firmly onto first link of chain next to jump ring, leaving a 10-15cm tail. Secure with a tiny dab of glue if desired

2 - Necklace - adding beads

Glamour-ice

String 2 seed beads, 1 pearl, 1 abacus bead/rondelle, 1 pearl and 2 seed beads on the long end of the thread

3 - Necklace - adding beads

Glamour-ice

Lay next to chain, take thread through link just above where last bead sits Bring needle and thread through the link just above the end of the beads and pull snug

4 - Necklace - continue adding beads

Glamour-ice

Repeat steps the previous two until you reach the end of the chain, or you have added 23 sections (the two should coincide!)

5 - Finishing necklace

Glamour-ice

For each of the thread tails: - Bring thread down through 2 seed beads and a pearl (taking care not to unthread it from the link you threaded it through) - Tie knot above the abacus bead/rondelle - Bring thread through abacus bead/rondelle - Tie knot below abacus bead/rondelle - Bring thread through 4 seed beads, 1 pearl, 1 abacus bead/rondelle and 1 pearl - Snip tail close to pearl Trim chain length if needed, and add a jump ring at the end.

6 - Bracelet

Glamour-ice

Cut chain length to 20 cm Cut thread to 50 cm Repeat the instructions for the necklace until you have added 9 sections to the chain. Finish off as per necklace

7 - Earrings

Glamour-ice

On each headpin put an abacus bead/ rondelle, a pearl and two seed beads.

8 - Finishing earrings

Glamour-ice

Make a loop at the end of each headpin and snip the excess wire off Attach the loop to the ear wire

9 - Detachable back dangles

Glamour-ice

Cut three lengths of chain - I went for 5cm, 8cm and 13 cm One one headpin put one abacus bead/rondelle, one pearl and two seed beads, make a loop in the head pin as you did for the earrings and attach to the end of the shortest length of chain. On two other headpins, add one pearl and two seed beads. Again, loop the ends and attach one each to the ends of the remaining two chains. Join all three lengths with a jump ring on the end without the dangles, then add a jump ring to that jumping to make it easier to add.

Using the back dangles

Glamour-ice

Simply clip the dangles onto the clasp for extra glamour when wearing a top with a low back.
