Step 1
Using flush-cutters, cut the following:
  • One 7-inch length of gold-plated 4mm lantern chain
  • Two 7-inch lengths of silver-plated 4mm lantern chain
Step 2
Place a layer of E-6000® Jewelry and Craft Adhesive on the inside of a cord end and the first link of one 7-inch length of silver-plated lantern chain. Press the end of the first silver-plated chain into the cord end. Repeat to attach the first link of the 7-inch length of gold-plated lantern chain in the center of the cord end and the first link of the second 7-inch length of silver-plated lantern chain on the opposite side. Repeat to attach the last link of the three chains into a second cord end. Let the adhesive set for 24 hours. Make sure to use proper ventilation when using this product.

String onto the link, the loop on one gold-plated star. Use a pair of chain-nose pliers to hook the link back into the lantern chain. Repeat to attach five gold-plated stars on each of the three lengths of chain.
