    Open the loop of an eyepin, attach to a 25mm round and close the loop. Thread a flattie onto the eyepin, with the cutting part of the pliers trim the eyepin 1.5cm above the bead, bend into a loop slightly larger than the other side. Attach to the opposite side of the link so that the bead sits in the centre, close the loop. (This is the side that you attach the jump rings to later). Make three more.

I don't understand the directions but I still want to try making one. I like all the circles.

If the flattie is the pink bead why do the directions call for only one?
