Step two: On each of six head pins, string one 6mm white Swarovski pearl. Attach three of the pearls to the bottom-most link of the chain with a wrapped loop. Attach the other three pearls to the fourth link from the bottom of the chain. For instructions on how to make a Wrapped Loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
