Earrings with Antiqued Gold-Plated Pewter Charms, Gold-Plated "Pewter" Charms and Swarovski Crystal Beads and Links
Step 1
String one 4mm Indian sapphire AB faceted round crystal bead onto one 3/4 inch gold-plated headpin. Using round-nose pliers, flat-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire to create a 4mm faceted round bead drop.

Repeat to create a second 4mm faceted round bead drop. Repeat to create two 8mm round bead drops using one 8mm metallic pale gold faceted round glass bead and one 3/4 inch gold-plated jumpring and through one loop on a gold-plated Swarovski crystal link.
Step 2
Open one 6.5x5mm gold-plated oval jumpring and pass it through the loop on one gold-plated fishhook earwire and the loop on one 21x20mm gold-plated open arm angel charm. Close the jumpring.
Step 3
Open one 6x4mm gold-plated oval jumpring and pass it through the loop on the gold-plated fishhook earwire next to the 6.5x5mm jumpring and through one loop on a gold-plated Swarovski crystal link. Close the jumpring.
Step 4
Open one 6x4mm gold-plated oval jumpring and pass it through the opposite loop of the gold-plated Swarovski crystal link. Close the jumpring.
Step 5
Open one 6x4mm gold-plated oval jumpring and pass it through the last 6x4mm gold-plated jumpring and one loop on a second gold-plated Swarovski crystal link. Close the jumpring.
Step 6
Open one 6x4mm gold-plated oval jumpring and pass it through the loop on one 8mm faceted round bead drop and the last 6x4mm gold-plated jumpring. Close the jumpring.
Step 7
Open one 6x4mm gold-plated oval jumpring and pass it through the loop on one gold-plated angel wing charm and the second to the last jumpring. Close the jumpring.
Step 8
Open the loop on one 4mm faceted round bead drop and attach it to the opposite loop on the gold-plated Swarovski crystal link. Close the jumpring.

Repeat Steps 2 - 8 to create a second earring.
