Love Drops Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Tell the world you are in love with these delicate chain drop earrings.

Step one: Cut the chain to your desired length, we used nine links for the bottom and 16 for the top. Remember you will need two of everything we use for the pair of earrings.

Step two: On an eye pin, attach the sterling silver heart charm to the bottom loop, then string a hex bead, a 6mm Swarovski light rose bicone and another hex bead. Attach one end of the 9 link piece of chain and finish with a wrapped loop. For detailed instructions on how to make a wrapped loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step three: On another eye pin, string a daisy spacer, a 4mm Swarovski rose bicone and another daisy spacer. Finish with a simple loop. Use this component as the link between the two pieces of chain by gently opening the loops and sliding a chain onto both sides.

Step four: Attach the remaining end of chain to the ball earring post. Repeat steps two through four for the other earring.
Approximate size: Cut the chain to make any length you desire
