Since a pacifier chain is an everyday companion, you should not only choose fascinating colors, but pay attention to functionality and safety.

Step 3: Thread the beads and motifs
Let’s start with one of the two safety beads. Thread them so that the larger hole points towards the clip. Then put the motif beads in the desired order. Your pacifier chain should end best with a smaller pearl. After the last pearl follows a solid knot. Cut off the end of the whiskers. The lighter is used again – weld the ends and thread the second safety bead. Then grab the silicone ring and slide the loop through the slot in the ring. Finished!
