  2. Make two of these units (this is the top portion of the earring): On a 1.5" nickel-free brass eye pin, place a Swarovski 6mm crystal. Make a simple loop at the other end of the eye pin.
  3. Open one of the loops on the unit you made in Step 2 and insert the top (head) of the 2-Hole Dragonfly Connector. Close the loop.
  4. Now, attach the dangle you made in Step 1 to the tail of the 2-Hole Dragonfly Connector, by opening and closing the top loop of the Step 1 unit.
  5. Open the loop on one of the nickel-free brass ear wires, attach the completed earring units you made in Step 4 to the ear wire loop, and close the loop.
  6. Repeat Steps 3 through 5 for the other earring.
