Designer Tips, Continued
Using the 2 headpins, place 1 love bead (heart) and 1 fluted hogan bead onto each headpin. Trim excess leaving 0.25" of headpin above the beads and curl remaining headpin length into a loop and attach to the bottom loop of the cushion bezel settings. Set aside.
For each of the 4 remaining outer loops of triangles, cut and attach a 2.5-3" length of wire, starting your bend at approximately 1/2" from one end of wire piece. Wrap 1/2" tail around twice and cut away excess. Place 1 chrysolite opal bicone on free end and start to close other end but leave as a "U".
Cut chain into 2 3inch pieces, 2 3.5inch pieces, and 4 4inch pieces. For each earring, starting on the left headpin, feed 2 4inch pieces of chain onto open end of headpin, then the 3.5" piece, then a 3" piece. Close loop, wrap twice and cut away excess. Then on the right side headpin, ensure chain is not twisted and place other ends of the 4" pieces onto end of headpin, then the 3.5" piece, then the 3" piece, close loop, wrap twice and trim excess.
Finally, feed the two remaining jump rings through the top of each 13mm briolette and hang each on the two longest (4inch) pieces of chain for each earring and close jump rings.
