Create and Attach Bead Drops

STEP 2
Place one gold-plated heishi or smooth round accent bead, one pink glass bead and one gold-plated heishi or smooth round accent bead onto a 2-inch headpin. Form a simple loop above the bead to create a pink bead drop. Repeat to create four, using an assortment of pink beads from the mix.
STEP 3
Place a 1-inch headpin through a hole on one 31mm gold round and thread on a pink 4mm crystal. Form a simple loop. Open the loop and pass it through the loop on top of one of the bead drops. Close the loop.

Repeat Step 3 to attach links to the other 31mm and 23.5mm round links.
STEP 4
Place a 4mm pink crystal onto an eyepin. Form a simple loop on the other end to create a double-loop beading link. Open an 8mm jumpring and pass it through one loop on the double-loop beading link and the square gold link. Close the jumpring. Open the loop on the other end of the double-loop beading link. Pass the open loop through the loop on top of the final pink bead drop. Close the loop.
