2.Place one Swarovski faceted round 4mm onto a headpin. Cut the excess wire. Finish the end with a simple wire loop using round-nose pliers to create a drop. Repeat to create a total of four.
3.Attach the Swarovski flat briolette made in step 1 and two of the Swarovski faceted drops made in step 2 to a Swarovski round crystal link using the jump ring.
4.Open a loop on an ear wire. Attach the loop to the other end of the Swarovski round crystal link. Close the loop.
Below are instructions on how to form a simple wire loop:
Using a piece of wire 1-2" long, grip the wire about 1/2" in from the end with the tip of the round nose pliers. Make a 90 degree bend in the wire by pushing the end opposite of the 1/2" piece down.
Using an underhand grip (with you palm facing up), hold the end of your bent wire in the round nose pliers, about 1/2" down from the tip of the pliers.
Roll the end of the wire towards the bend in the wire so that they meet.
Below are instructions on how to open a jump ring:
With two pairs of chain nose pliers, hold each side of the jump ring.
Gently push one side of the jump ring back to open it. Remember always open in a side-to-side motion, do not pull the ends away from each other as if expanding the circle.
Reverse the motion to close.
