Cut a length of the 30131788 chain so that you have 3 links attached ending with a flower (you are not counting the flower as one of the links).
On a head pin; string on a 2.5mm bead, a star, an oasis cap, a tear drop crystal, and another 2.5mm bead. Wire wrap to the 4 leaf flower on the petal that is opposite from the links.
Cut 4 inches of 22 gauge wire. Wire wrap one end to the last link of the piece of chain. String on a 2.5mm bead, a bicone, a star, a bicone, a star, a bicone, and another 2.5mm bead. Wire wrap to the center loop of the 3 strand connector but make this wrap run perpendicular from the wrap on the other end of this wire to ensure that the 4 leaf flower faces forward when being worn.
Cut 5 inches of the small cable chain.
Take a head pin and string on a 2.5mm bead, and antique leaf cup, a glass rondelle, and another 2.5mm bead. Wire wrap to one end of the chain. Repeat on the other end of the chain.
Measuring 1 1/2 inches of chain from the wire wrap, attach to the first link of the 3 link connector with an oval jump ring. Repeat on the other end of the chain to the last link of the connector.
Make sure the drape of chain falls behind the middle link of beads that fall from the center of the connector.
Open the end of the ear wire and attach the connector.
Repeat all these steps for the other earring.
