Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Begin By using the gold wire to make a bead link using a faceted 4mm gold round bead and a Czech Glass crown bead. Slide the top loop of the bead link onto the loop of an earwire. Attach the bottom loop of the bead link to the top of the teardrop paddle set with a jump ring.
Step 2:
To make the charm in the center, make a bead link with a 6mm gold round bead & two Apatite beads. Attach the top of the link to the jump ring at the top of the pendant set. Make a bead charm with a headpin & a 3mm faceted gold round bead. Attach the charm directly to the bottom of the bead link.
