Cut off a long thread and pull on the beads. Make a knot before and after each bead to fix it. Pull the beads to the desired length. Then attach the end caps, binding rings and the ring and bar fastener.

Step 2 - Wrap pearls with bead cap of kneading silver

Unroll the kneading silver and wrap a bead around it to get a decorative bead cap (the clay shrinks a little when drying). At the top point, pierce a small hole in the bead cap. Burn the kneading silver after complete drying with the Dremel VersaFlame.

Tip: Apply a light coating on all surfaces that come in contact with the kneading silver, eg. As from olive oil or Vaseline, so that the kneading silver does not adhere.

Step 3 - Engrave bead caps

Engrave a helical pattern on the silver bead cap with the Dremel Engraver (Diamond Engraving Tip 9929). Polish the bead cap with the Dremel 7700 (SpeedClic mandrel SC402 with the polishing pad 423S). For best results, apply some Dremel Polishing Paste 421. Put the bead on the rivet pin and attach the bead cap to the bead. Tighten the end of the rivet pin with a pair of pliers and fasten the pin in the middle of the chain. (Courtesy of Dremel)
