INSTRUCTIONS

Crystal Drops

Take a head pin and thread on a small star bead cap, an 8mm round faceted glass crystal bead, followed by another small star bead cap. 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. Open another jump ring and attach to the previous jump ring. Repeat this process 11 more times, so that you have 12 crystal drops in total.

Heart Drops

Take a head pin and thread on:

  • a large star bead cap
  • a large heart glass bead (base down first)
  • a rope crown metal 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).
