Cut 45 cm of the 0.30mm nylon thread and string 39 Crystal Pearls in Crystal White Pearl, 4mm and one Swarovski crystal Bead article 5328 Ruby.
Tie a double knot, but be sure not to tie it too tight. Slide the ends of the nylon thread back through five pearls. Cut the ends of the nylon threads.
Repeat step 1, but use a Swarovski crystal Bead article 5000 in Siam (instead of the Swarovski crystal Bead article 5328 Ruby) and slide the pearl string through the first pearl ring. Repeat step 2.
Repeat step 1, but use a Swarovski crystal Bead article 5328 in Dark Red Coral and slide the pearl string through the first and the second pearl rings. Repeat step 2.
Repeat steps 1 - 4 sliding the pearl strings through the pearl rings.
Glue two pieces of leather together. Sketch the circle with indicated segments as you see in the illustration on the paper. Adhere double-sided sticky tape to the back side of the paper circle and attach it on the leather.
Take a needle and pierce through the marked points. Cut the circle out with the scissors and remove paper circle.
Cut 1.2 m from the 0.40mm nylon thread and string on 36 Crystal Pearls in Crystal White Pearl, 3mm. Make a double knot, so that you get a short (20 cm) and a long end of thread.
Using the long end of the thread, attach the needle and sew the pearl ring onto the leather. Make only five loose stitches (see illustration for positioning and stitching). Keep a 4mm distance between pearl ring and leather.
Slide the Swarovski crystal Round Stone article 1201 between the pearl ring and the leather, and finish sewing the rest of the pearl ring on the leather. After the last stitch, slide a toothpick between the pearl ring and the leather in order to keep them on level while tying the double knot. For securing the thread stitch four times up and down, best underneath the stone for lesser visibility. Cut off the excess thread and take the toothpick out.
Place the multiple pearl ring onto the pearl ring that is sewn to the leather and sew it onto the leather base as well. Make a double knot and cut off the rest of the nylon thread.
Cut a 30 cm piece of nylon thread. Slide it through the heart pendant and string on six 5810, 3mm pearls.Thread back through the pearls, form a loop and tie a knot. Cut off the rest of the nylon thread.
Open an 8mm jumpring, slide the pearl ring with the Swarovski crystal Heart Pendant onto it and hook it on the brooch. See illustration for positioning. Close the jumpring.
Repeat step 12 but instead of the Swarovski crystal Heart Pendant use a Swarovski crystal Pendant article 6015. Open a 6mm jumpring. Slide on the pearl ring with the Pendant article 6015. Open five 5mm jumprings and make a chain attaching them to the 6mm jumpring. Attach the last one in the 8mm jumpring from the Heart Pendant before.
Repeat step 12 but instead of the Swarovski crystal Heart Pendant use a Swarovski crystal Pendant article 6015. Open a 6mm jumpring and slide onto the pearl ring with the Pendant article 6015.
