4. Slide the top loop of the bead link onto a large kidney shaped earring wire.
5. Repeat steps 1-4 for the matching earring.

Necklace:

2. Attach each chain to a rope toggle end using 4mm jump rings. The chains should attach to the small end of the rope toggle.
3. Attach a lobster claw clasp to one of the 8" chains using a 4mm jump ring.
4. Cut a 2" length of oval chain. Use a 6mm jump ring to attach the chain to the other 8" chain end.

6. Attach a single pearl drop to the end of the 2" extender chain from step 4.
7. Cut 5 random lengths of oval chain, varying from 1"-2". Use 4mm jump rings to attach the five chains to the large end of the rope toggle end.
