Tip: When stringing hematite teardrops, take care to orient them correctly with small ends facing small ends and larger ends facing larger ends.
1. Open a jump ring. Slide the loop of the snowflake connector onto the jump ring. Close the jump ring.
2. Slide two crimp tubes onto the beading wire. Pass the wire through one jump ring and back through the tubes.
3. Crimp the tubes and trim excess wire.
4. String 1 gold faceted rondell, 1 hematite teardrop, 1 rhinestone rondelle, and 1 hematite teardrop. Repeat this pattern 5 more times.
5. String 1 gold faceted rondelle and two crimp tubes. Pass the wire through the second jump ring (with the snowflake connector attached) and back through the crimp tubes. Crimp the tubes and trim excess wire.
6. Remove the black tassel from the ear wire. Open the loop on the back of the snowflake charm and place the tassel on the loop. Close the loop.
