I wanted to create a simple necklace to showcase these new Czech glass mermaid beads- I think they look great paired with the crystal chain!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Attach a lobster clasp & jump ring to the ends of the chain. Slide the mermaid bead onto a headpin & make a loop at the top w/ round nose pliers.
