Christmastime Earrings

PROJECT E774
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Want to show your festive holiday side but still look elegant? These gold star and SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal cabochette earrings are the perfect blend of sophistication and holiday whimsy.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Your little star charms come with jump rings already attached. Take 4 of them and remove their jump rings.
  2. Open a 6mm jump ring and slide it through the hole in your cabochette pendant. Close the jump ring.
  3. Take a star charm with the jump ring still attached and open that jump ring. Link onto it the 6mm jump ring you attached to your cabochette pendant. Also slide onto it one of your stars without a jump ring (from the first step). Close the jump ring.
  4. Take a star charm with the jump ring still attached and open that jump ring. Link onto it the jump ring you just attached in the step above (link at the point between the two stars). Also link onto this jump ring another star without a jump ring. Close the jump ring.
  5. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook. Place onto that loop a star without a jump ring, the jump rings you just attached in the last step (link at the point between the two stars), and another jump ring. Close the loop back up.
  6. Happy Holidays!
