First, you open the ee of the eyepin, insert the chain and close the eye again.
Next, you string the teardrop and the Swarovski bead onto the pin. Afterwards, you make a loop with the rest of the wire. In our Smyks guide ”The famous loop”, we explain how to do that.

First, you open the eye of the eyepin carefully. Then, you insert the Swarovski crystal teardrop and close the eye again. Pull the eye carefully through the teardrop in order not to break it. Crystal glass is fragile.
Next, you string string the beads – alternately a crystal and a gilded bead – onto the pin. You close the wire by making a loop using flat-nose pliers. In our Smyks guide ”The famous loop”, we explain how to do that.

Then, you take a piece of wire, make a loop, insert the chain into the loop and close the loop by winding the wire around it. In our Smyks guide ”The famous loop”, we explain how to do that.
Next, you string the crystals onto the wire. When you are done with that, you connect the wire with the other piece of chain as you did before. Now, the chosen Swarovski crystals are integrated into the chain.

Take a 4mm jumpring and fasten the crystal teardrop to one end of the chain with it. Be careful when you pull the jumpring through the Swarovski crystal drop, otherwise it might break

Finally, you attach the other 4mm jumpring to the other end of the chain.
Now you can hang the finished chain into earstuds or earwires. For our example here, we chose earstudes with a flat pad.
