Step 1: Cut 4 five inch lengths of wire in each of the 3 colors. Arrange the wires into 4 piles containing 1 strand of each color. Choose 2 piles of wire and set the other 2 piles aside.
Step 2: Hold all 6 wire ends together and use them to string 1 crimp tube. Adjust the wires and crimp about 1 1/2 inches from the end. Click here for crimping instructions. Trim 5 of the 6 wires at the crimp.
Step 3: Bend 3 wires to the left and 3 wires to the right to create the heart shape. Use 3 of the wires to string 1 ear wire.
Step 4: Use all 6 wire ends and the uncut strand from Step 2 to string 1 crimp tube. Adjust the crimp so that there is about 2 1/2 inches of wire on each side of the heart and the one strand in the middle is about 1 inch. Crimp the crimp tube and trim the excess wire.

Step 1: Cut five 4" lengths of wire in two different colors for the big links. You should have a total of ten 4" lengths of wire. Cut ten 2 " lengths of wire.
Step 2: String the crimp onto a 4" length of wire. Make a 1/2" loop and string the wire through the crimp again. Make a 5/8" loop and string the tail of the wire through the crimp. The wire passed through the crimp 3 times. Crimp the tube using the crimping pliers and cut off excess wire. Click here for crimping instructions. Create five of these components in two different colors for a total of ten big links.
Step 3: Use a 2" length of wire to connect two of the large components made in two different colors. String a crimp onto your wire. String the wire through the middle of each of the large components.
