Material:

  1. Using the chain nose pliers, open the earwire slip on the filigree finding at its narrowest point, as in the photo, and close.
  2. Cut 2 ¼” chain (8 oval links) in length.
  3. Using the chain nose pliers and round nose pliers, open a jump ring, slipping one end of the chain onto it and through the loop of the filigree, just above the widest part, refer to photo for proper placement, and close.
  4. Repeat Step 3 for the other end of the chain.
  5. Prepare the crystals by slipping one onto a head pin, trimming the wire with the nipper tool, to just over 3/8” from the top of the bead and make a rosary loop with the Wire Looping Tool or Round Nose Pliers as demonstrated in the Earrings with Chain Video.
  6. Prepare all crystals as in Step 5 for (4) 4mm bicones, (3) 6mm bicones and (1) 8mm bicone.
  7. Attach each crystal opening the rosary loops with the chain nose pliers, in order from the first link (attaching into the tiny chain links skipping the ovals) 4mm; 6mm; 4mm; 6mm (middle); 4mm; 6mm; 4mm.
  8. Attach the 8mm bicone to the middle loop of the filigree finding.
  9. To ensure the right drape effect, make sure the jump rings fall to the back of the filigree, which they will naturally tend to do.
  10. Repeat the above steps to complete the pair.
