STEP 1
String one Swarovski 3mm round crystal bead onto a 1/2 inch eyepin. Form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire to form a 3mm crystal beading link.

Repeat to create a total of ten 3mm crystal beading links.

Repeat to create the following beading links:
  • One 6mm round crystal beading link using one Swarovski 6mm round crystal bead and one 1-inch eyepin.
  • One 10mm heart crystal beading link using one Swarovski 10mm heart crystal bead and one 1-inch eyepin.
STEP 2
Open the loop on one earwire and attach it to one loop on the 6mm round crystal beading link. Close the loop.
STEP 3
Open the opposite loop on your 6mm round crystal beading link and attach it to a loop on a 3mm round crystal beading link. Continue to attach three additional 3mm round crystal beading links creating a crystal beading link chain.

Repeat to create a crystal beading link chain for the other side of the earring.

Close the loop. Repeat to attach the last link of the 1-1/4 inch and 1-1/2 inch lengths of chain to a 3mm round crystal beading link and the opposite loop of the 20mm circle link. Close the loop.
STEP 6
Open a 6mm jumpring and attach it to one loop of the 10mm heart crystal beading link and to one loop of the 20mm circle link. Close the loop. Repeat to attach the other loop of the 10mm heart crystal beading link to the other side of the 20mm circle link.
