Begin with three teardrop beads and three head pins. Insert the head
pins into all three beads and hang the beads from the center and the two
end loops on the 5 loop wire component.
Now we are ready to connect the 5 loop wire component to the bottom wire component. Using between 2 1/2 and 3 inches of 22 or 24 gauge wire, make a wrapped bead link, connecting the empty loop in the 5 loop wire component made on Peg 2, with one of the end loops on your bottom wire component. The jewelry making technique for making the wrapped bead link can be found here. Once that connection is completed, do the same thing with the remaining empty loop in the 5 loop wire component and the opposite end of the bottom wire component.
Once these wire components are connected, take three beads and three head pins and connect the beads to the bottom three loops in the bottom wire component using your head pins.
At this point you are ready to connect the ear wire finding to the middle loop in the top wire component either by your modified figure 8 connector or directly. This is done by opening the loops in the modified figure 8 connector using your bent chain nose pliers, connecting the components and closing the loops. This completes the assembly of this earring.
