Mix Devcon® 5 Minute® Epoxy according to manufacturer's instructions. Place a thin layer of adhesive on the inside of the gold-plated 32x22.5mm pear setting and on the back of the Swarovski crystal AB 30x20mm pear fancy stone. Press the rhinestone into the mounting. Let the adhesive set for 5 minutes. Make sure to use proper ventilation when using this product. Repeat to create five pear fancy stone mounted drops.
STEP 2
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open the loop on the end of an eyepin. Pass the loop through the loop on the top of one pear fancy stone mounted drop. Close the loop. Repeat to attach one pear fancy stone mounted drop to five eyepins.
STEP 3
String one Swarovski crystal AB 12mm Artemis bead (through the cone end), one gold-plated and Swarovski crystal AB 6mm rondelle bead and one Swarovski fuchsia 12x11mm cosmic bead onto the straight end of the eyepin with a drop. Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire to create one beading link. Repeat to create two fuchsia 12x11mm cosmic beading links.

Repeat to create two crystal golden shadow 12x11mm cosmic beading links using one Swarovski crystal AB 12mm Artemis bead (through the cone end), one gold-plated and Swarovski crystal AB 6mm rondelle bead and one Swarovski crystal golden shadow 12x11mm cosmic bead and one eyepin with a drop.
