Project Instructions

Place one pearl and one bead cap onto the eye pin.  

Bend the pin to form a right angle. Cut the pin approximately ¼" beyond the bead. Use the round end of your pliers to grasp the end of the pin and curve the pin by using a rolling motion to fold it over a single round prong. Be sure to start rolling from the end of the pin. This will give you a good round loop and sturdy connection.  

Before closing the loop on the eye pin, attach the earring finding. Finish closing the loop. 

Attach three small lengths of chain to the loop at the bottom of the earring.  

Place one crystal onto a headpin. Bend the pin to form a right angle. Cut the pin approximately ¼" beyond the bead. Use the round end of your pliers to grasp the end of the pin and curve the pin by using a rolling motion to fold it over a single round prong. Repeat for each crystal. 

Before closing the loop on the crystal attach it to the last link in the chain length. Close the loop with round nose pliers.
