Earrings with Swarovski Crystal Beads and Silver-Plated Jumprings
Start with making your chain mail for the heart to dangle from. Open 20 Jumprings:
Add open second jumpring to first unopened jumpring (this is your base) and close. Add third jumpring to the first and second jumprings where they meet by bringing the third jumpring around the first jumpring and through the second jumpring and close, keeping hold of the first jumpring. Add the fourth jumpring in the same manner as the third, by bringing around the first, and through the second and third jumprings and close.
Add the fifth jumpring by bringing through the second, third and fourth jumprings (this is now your base) and close. Add the sixth and seventh jumprings in the same manner as the third and fourth, by wrapping around the three jumprings and through jumpring five and then six and close.
Repeat Step 2 with jumprings eight, nine and ten, and close.
Add Jumpring 11 by bringing through jumprings eight, nine and ten and close.
Repeat Steps 1-4 for second earring.
You should have three sets of 3 interlocking jumprings with a single jumpring on each end x2.
Put horseshoe bails on Swarovski Crystal hearts. (You may have to open it up a tiny bit,
very carefully, with your tools to accomodate the crystal width.)
Open single jumpring on chainmaille chains and attach to horseshoe bails and close.
Open earring loops and attach other single jumpring on chainmaille chains w/ heart to earrings and close. Your done!
