Collect keychain rings, beads in various colors, sizes, and shapes, beading wire or cord, crimp beads, and jewelry pliers.
Decide on the pattern and arrangement of beads you want for your keychain. Consider color combinations and bead sizes for a visually appealing design.
Plan Your Design
Measure and cut a suitable length of beading wire or cord, leaving extra for attaching to the keychain ring.
Cut the Wire or Cord
Thread the beads onto the wire or cord in the desired order. Experiment with different combinations until you achieve the desired look.
Slide Beads onto Wire or Cord
Slide a crimp bead onto the wire or cord, then pass the wire or cord through the keychain ring and back through the crimp bead. Use pliers to flatten the crimp bead
Secure with Crimp Beads
Repeat the process of adding beads, sliding on crimp beads, and attaching them to the keychain ring until you have reached the desired length or completed your design.
Continue Adding Beads
Trim any excess wire or cord, ensuring that the keychain is neat and tidy. Double-check the secure attachment of the beads and crimp beads to ensure durability.
