String onto the wire five sets of one gold-plated 2.5mm round bead and one Swarovski rose gold 4mm round pearl and one gold-plated 2.5mm round bead and back through the crimp tubes and earwire. Pull the wire until it forms a loop 1-11/16 inches in diameter.

Using the crimping pliers, crimp each of the crimp tubes. Using flush-cutters, trim any excess wire from the both short ends.
