You can use any type of beads and/or crystals and how long you wanted the chains to be, make it colorful or monotonous. But don’t be fooled, though this is not a jewelry making tutorial, you will still learn basic wire work techniques such as making loops and using jump rings, which are essential skills you need to learn in jewelry making. With this craft idea of using beads and crystals, you can add your own personal touch to your key holders and/or key chains.

Step 7: Cut a piece of wire. Gather the chains, fold at the center and wrap the wire to create a loop. Attach a jump ring into the group of chains then attach onto the loop at the end of the pink crystal.
Step 8: Slide in a small silver bead followed by a crystal into the head pin. Create a loop at the end of the pin and attach onto the chain like shown in this picture. Do the same for the rest of crystals and chains.
