Instructions

Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

  1. Remember to double all of the instructions in order to create both earrings. Onto a headpin, thread a 4mm Light Colorado Topaz Austrian crystal cube bead. Create a simple wire loop and trim off excess wire. Set this aside.
  2. Onto an eyepin, thread a 4mm Austrian crystal bicone. (NOTE: We used the Light Topaz color, but for a more Christmas-like effect you may use a red bead instead.) Create a simple wire loop and trim off excess wire.
  3. Open the loop at one end of your bicone link, using the same method you would use to open a jump ring. Thread this loop through the hole at the top of the cosmic triangle gold tone setting; the hole on the point. Close the jump ring again.
  4. Open the loop at the top of the headpin dangle and thread it through the hole at the bottom of the gold tone setting, in between two points. Close the jump ring again.
  5. Open one of tiny jump rings and thread it through both the loop at the top of the bicone link, and the loop at the bottom of the earring hook. Close the jump ring again.
  6. Finally, place your Austrian crystal cosmic triangle in the setting to figure out which way it sets in there properly. Once you have determined which direction it should go, evenly spread a tiny amount of E6000 on the back of the cosmic triangle and press it firmly into the setting. Set the earring aside to dry for at least a few hours before wearing.
