24 gold-plated head pins
12 rondelles different colors, same size and shape

1. Slide a bead onto a headpin. Bend the wire over 90 degrees using the chian-nose pliers. Cut tail of wire so it is 1 cm long using wire cutters. Grab end of tail with round-nose pliers and roll wire into loop.
2. Repeat to put a bead on every headpin. Add bead caps to the headpins with rondelles.
3. Attach a beaded headpin to the chain 1/4” in from the end. Open the loop on the headpin using the chain nose pliers, slide the loop open like a door without losing the circle shape. Slide the loop through the chain, then close the loop. Repeat adding a beaded headpin to the chain every 1/4”.
4. Open the jump ring with both pliers, opening it like a door. Slide open jump ring into the end of the chain. Slide lobster clasp into jump ring. Close the jump ring. To clasp the bracelet, just hook into any link in the 1” of chain left at the other end of the chain.
