Crystal Spike Earrings

PROJECT E3066
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
A little bit edgy, a little bit glam; these earrings featuring a Swarovski crystal spike pendant and gold plated findings offer the best of both worlds.
Instructions
By following the directions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. With your chain nose pliers, open a gold plated 8mm jump ring and slide it onto the loop on the bottom of your TierraCast earring stud and also the hole on your Swarovski crystal spike pendant. Close the jump ring.
  2. Cut a wire length of 10 inches with your flush cutters.
  3. Take your length of wire and using your fingers, wrap it around the top portion of your Swarovski crystal spike pendant as a decorate accent. If you would like a neater look, simply use your pliers for a tight wrap. See photo for assistance.
  4. Lastly, add on your gold tone hypo allergic earring back and you're done!
