Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Make a bead link by sliding a gold spacer, a Czech glass 14mm round bead, and another spacer onto an eye pin. Slide the gold hoop onto the bottom of the eye pin.
Step 2:
Make bead charms with the seed beads, Czech glass pink 4mm rounds, and the 3mm gold crystals. For the center charm, I slid a Czech glass gold rose petal onto the loop of an eye pin, slid a seed bead onto the pin, and made a bead charm. Make 5 charms and attach them to the gold hoop with jump rings.
Step 3:
Slide the loop at the top of the bead link onto an earwire.
