Directions
 

We are going to use crimp covers as stoppers on the triangle links to create the tree form. Using the crimping tool, close down two crimp covers in the middle of one side of a triangle link while leaving a gap between the 2 covers to attach the point of the next triangle link with a jump ring.
After connecting link with a jump ring, use chain nose pliers to squeeze the crimps together to keep the tip from moving. Repeat with one more triangle.
After connecting all three triangles at the top point of the top triangle, open a jump ring and attach the star. Close the jump ring and attach the ear wire by opening the eye and slipping on the star. Close the ear wire.
Now attach the bells to the back side of each triangle with a jump ring. Attach that jump ring to the jump ring that is connecting the triangles.
