Step 1. Use your nipper tool to cut your chain into three pieces: One with 10 chain links, one with 7 chain links, and one with 4 chain links.
Step 2. Use your pliers and a head pin to dangle a garnet crystal from the bottom of your 10 link piece of chain. Skip a chain link, then dangle a light smoked topaz crystal. Repeat this one more time so that you have 4 crystals hanging from this piece of chain. Set aside.
Step 3. Repeat this process on your 7 link piece of chain, but begin with a light smoked topaz crystal and only hang 3 crystals total. On your 4 link piece of chain, hang only two crystals, starting with a garnet crystal.
Step 4. Use pliers to carefully open the eye of your french wire. Hang each of your 3 pieces of chain from it and then squeeze it closed around them. Repeat for a matching earring!
