Using scissors cut a 1-yard length of tangerine Purely Silk thread and thread it onto a needle.
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers separate one 4-1/4 inch length section of gunmetal aluminum curb chain.
Using a craft knife create a 1-inch slit down the center of the 9-inch length of leather cord, beginning approximately 1-1/2 inches from one end. Repeat on other end.
Place the inner post side of the snap portion of the fastener onto the snap setter side on the anvil plate. Insert the tube of the stud through the hole on the back side of the leather. Place stud over the tube of the eyelet on the front side of leather. Hold setting tool straight and firmly strike with hammer until the tube and cap are secure.
Repeat this pattern down the entire length of the slit keeping your thread neat against the next stitch.
