Using your clippers, cut two pieces of chain that measure 2-1/4" long.

Open four jump rings. Open them one at a time using your chain nose pliers. Twist them open by pushing one side north and pulling the other side south. Never open a jump ring by pulling east to west. This will make it very hard to get them back into shape and close them completely.

Place one teardrop finding onto an open jump ring. Also add one piece of chain by sliding on the last link. Close the jump ring by twisting back in the opposite direction as before (south to north).

Place another open jump ring through the one we just closed and place the loop of the ear wire on the open jump ring.

The chain appears to be to small to fit on the jump ring. I have tried all the rings provided in this kit. Is any one else having this problem?

This was my first thing I made and was easy and cute. I did have trouble getting the chain on the jump ring but it did fit had to use reading glasses . Unfortunately the first time i wore them i lost one :(.
