Instructions

Bend in half the brass diamond trellis filigree stamping (PND-5709) using the small part of the bail making pliers (XTL-0031).Align the tips of the filigree bail with the hole of the Swarovski heart (SWBB-3758). You will see 2 small holes on the tips of the filigree piece.Cut a piece of 24 gauge wire (WCR-2430) 6 inches in length. Fold the wire in half. Thread one of the sides of the wire through one of the filigree holes, the swarovski heart, and through the adjacent filigree hole on the other side. Thread the other side of the wire through the other hole of the filigree, the Swarovski heart, back through the other side of the adjacent filigree hole. Now twist the wires together, just like a twist tie on a loaf of bread. This will tighten the bail closed over the heart. Cut off excess wire, leaving about an 1/8th of an inch of the twisted wire. Tuck the twisted wire through one of the sides of the filigree hole using your chain nose pliers. Place one of the bead caps (BMB-3450) on top of the 4x4 steel block (XTL-6092). Flatten the bead cap with a rubber mallet (XTL-0247). Place a small dap of glue (XTL-1053) on the flattened bead cap. Place the bead cap on top of the filigree bail covering the piece of wire. Glue a Swarovski rhinestone (SWF-10980) on top of the bead cap to cover the small hole. Repeat this entire step for the back of the filigree (see photo).Open one of the smaller jump rings (FJR-5160). Link through the one side of the top of the filigree bail. Close jump ring. Repeat these steps with the other small jump ring (see photo).Open a plain medium jump ring (FJR-3089). Link through the two smaller jump rings on the bail. Close jump ring.Open the plain large jump ring (FJR-5331). Link through the plain medium jump ring on the assembled piece. Close jump ring.Thread the chain through the plain large jump ring from the assembled piece. Open a plain medium jump ring. Thread through one of the end links of the chain and they clasp (FCL-2213).

Tip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.
