  2. Place a 6mm tanzanite round crystal mini bead onto another head pin and create a simple wire loop after the bead. Repeat with nine more 6mm beads and head pins.
  3. Hang an 8mm bead from each of the middle loops on a pair of sterling silver teardrop earring findings by opening the wire loops as you would a jump ring.
  4. Hang five 6mm beads from the lower loops on each earring finding.
