INSTRUCTIONS

Pearl Drops

Take a head pin and thread on a medium, natural coloured pearl. Leaving a space of 10mm, cut the excess off the head pin. Twirl the end using your twirly wirlies. Open a jump ring and attach to the loop you just made. Take an eye pin, thread on a 6mm bicone glass crystal bead. Leaving a space of 10mm, cut the excess off the eye pin. Twirl the end using your twirly wirlies. Attach one of the loops to the jump ring on the head pin. Attach a jump ring onto the other loop. Repeat this process 7 more times, so that you have 8 pearl drops in total.

Heart Drops

Take a head pin and thread on:

  • a plain metal bead
  • a large star bead cap
  • a large heart glass bead (base down first)
  • a small barrel crown bead

Leaving a space of 10mm, cut the excess off the head pin. Twirl the end using your twirly wirlies. Open a jump ring and attach to the loop you just made. Repeat this process 2 more times, so that you have 3 heart drops in total. Take a single loop of the extra large twisted loop chain and attach to one of the jump rings attached to the heart drops. Repeat this, so you have one plain heart drop (heart drop A), and two heart drops attached to single links of chain (heart drop B).
