Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 2

Cut out shapes from faux leather.

Step 3

Punch a hole in each corner at the top of each shape.

Step 4

Measure and cut 10" [25.4 cm] from wire.

Step 5

Use your round nose pliers to create a loop about 2" [5.1 cm] from one end of the wire. Wrap excess wire around the wire below the loop two (or three) times then trim excess wire.

Step 6

Thread three of the smallest beads onto the wire.

Step 7

Thread the wire through the punched holes at the top of one of the smallest leather shapes.

Step 8

Add the next larger size bead to the wire and then next larger size leather shape.

Step 9

Repeat Step 8 in ascending order until you get to the largest; then repeat in descending order so each side mirrors the other.

Step 10

Add three of the smallest beads to the wire and make a loop in the wire. Wrap wire around itself about two (or three) times then trim excess wire.

Step 11

Gently shape the wire into a curve.

Step 12

Cut two 7" [17.8 cm] pieces of chain and attach one to each loop of the wire with jump rings.

Step 13

Add a jump ring to the other end of a chain piece and a jump ring with a clasp to the other.
