Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
For the charm bracelet, begin with a 6-6.5" (or your desired length) piece of chain. Attach a jump ring to one end, and a lobster clasp to the other end. Make bead charms using the rice pearls, moonstones, and headpins- attaching them directly to the chain (or you can attach them using jump rings).
Step 2:
For the bar bracelet, begin with two 2.5" pieces of chain. Make a bead Link using a headpin (Cut off the flat end of the headpin) & 5 moonstone beads. Attach the link to the chain with jump rings. Attach a lobster clasp & charm to one end of the bracelet, and a jump ring to the other end.
Step 3:
For the earrings, slide a piece of stainless steel gold chain (a little under 1") onto an earwire. Make a bead link using a headpin (Cut off the flat end of the headpin) and 2 moonstone beads. Attach the link directly to the chain. Make a bead charm using a headpin & a rice pearl. Attach directly to the bottom of the bead link.
Step 4:
For the necklace, begin with a 4" piece of the gold half flat delicate cable chain. Make bead charms with the rice pearls & moonstones. Attach them to the chain using jump rings. I also attached a CZ charm using a jump ring. Use jump rings to attach each end of the cable chain to 7" pieces of gold stainless steel chain. Finish by attaching a lobster clasp & jump ring to the end. I also made a bead charm with a headpin & two rice pearls & attached it to the end of the necklace.

    Wow, you are so creative. Your fingers must have trouble keeping up with your brain as I suspect its going a mile a minute thinking of new ways to use all the beautiful beads.
    I do love how you made one set that can be used as two sets and how its so affordable. Congratulations.
