How to make it:

To begin, Cheryl threaded the hanger spacer beads onto the key ring.  She used 8 hanger spacer beads in all.  Next Cheryl created simple dangles using a mixture of the lampwork beads and the crystal beads on a ball end head pin.  She hung the dangles from the key ring chain and from the hanger spacer beads.  To finish, she attached the ball chain necklace to the last 2 hanger spacer beads.
