July Ruby Pure Drop Jewelry Set Tutorial
Created by: Polly Nobbs-LaRue
Use chain-nose pliers to open a Gold-Fill sparkle jump ring and connect the smaller drop to an ear wire. For best way to open and close loops, see Jump Ring Hint in Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF). If the jump ring isn't perfectly closed, twist it back and forth slightly a few times until it lines up perfectly. (Use 2 pairs of chain-nose pliers or one set, and your fingers.)
Repeat for other earring.
Repeat with longer pure drop pendant, for matching necklace.
Optional: Open the loop on the ear wire and connect it directly to the 21mm Swarovski pure drop, instead of using an extra jump ring.
