Step 1 Pass a head pin through a coral round and make a wrapped loop; repeat for three total rounds.
Step 2 Cut a 12" length of silver wire and make a large loop to attach the three head pin dangles and a silver ring. Wrap the loop 2-3 times to close it.
Step 3 Pass the wire through the wide end of the teardrop bead.
Step 4 Make a wrapped loop and then wrap the extra wire downward around the base of the loop to form a bead cap.
Step 5 Cut a 16" length of silver wire and string seven coral rounds, the pendant and seven more coral rounds. Bend both ends of the wires in right angles so the beads won't slide off the wire.
Step 6 Cut six 7" lengths of chain.
Step 7 On one end of the wire, make a wrapped loop and slip three chains onto the loop.
Step 8 Wrap the extra wire around each bead, working your way toward the pendant. Wrap twice after the last bead. Repeat for the other side of the wire.
Step 9 Use a jump ring to attach half of the clasp to each end of the necklace.
Step 1 Pass a head pin through a coral round and make a wrapped loop; repeat for six total rounds.
Step 2 Cut a 6" length of silver wire and make a large loop to attach three head pin dangles and a silver ring. Wrap the loop two or three times to close it.
Step 3 Pass the wire through a glass bead and make a wrapped loop to attach it to an ear wire.
Step 4 Wrap the extra wire downward around the glass bead and secure it by coiling around the base of the bead.
Step 5 Cut a 2" length of wire and wrap it around the ear wire in a tight coil.
Step 6 Repeat Steps 2-5 to make a matching earring.
