1/4 inch 17 gauge steel jump rings

With your pliers and quarter inch steel jump rings make a euro 4 in 1 chain.

Take your wire loop it around your crochet hook and weave a single stitch through 2 of the center jump rings and repeat as necessary,

it takes some finagling but it can be accomplished , hopefully visible in the "Box end" pictures.

Step 3: Box-end It

Using your pliers box-end the 4 in 1 with the larger crochainmaille loops on the outside.

Step 4: Attach the Little Ones

Taking the smaller colored jumps ring..4 links long..attach them to the loop matrix.

I used three chains skipping some loops to give it an asymmetrical look.

Step 5: Make a Triangle

Step 6: Geting Byzzy

The at the bottom attach the leaf ..and a chain or the ear-hoop at the top(optional for earring if you like heavy things on your ears.)

Step 8: And You're Done.

This is what it looks completed..not too horrible for a first attempt.

You can add beads or other accessories to pretty it up more.

I left it bare bones just so I could use "Full Metal" in the title.
