Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut the teardrop chain to 6" inches. Cut the jump rings off the last bar. I also took off the middle teardrop, then I can place my large enamel teardrop in place of it.
Step 2:
Create a wire loop on your teardrop enamel and feed the wire through the jump ring in the center of the chain. Warp the excess wire around the loop and trim.
Step 3:
This is what your teardrop should look like.
Step 4:
Now slide the head pin through the pearl and create a loop around the chain. I looped it around the bar next to the large teardrop. Create a wire wrap around the loop and trim.
Step 5:
Attached your letter charm with a jump ring.
Step 6:
Now you can add jump rings on each end of the teardrop chain. Attach the white enamel chain to the jump ring. I added extra teardrops I had left over from the chain onto the jump rings. You can finish by attaching your clasp.
