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.

You can make this earring in a variety of finishes and choose your favorite PRESTIGE crystal colors!
  1. Start by placing a bicone onto your earring hook's long unfinished wire end. Slide it up towards the arch of the hook. Create a simple wire loop after the bead and cut off the remaining amount of wire. This finishes your earring hook.
  2. For the next several steps please refer to the photo often for placement.
  3. Cut a 9-inch piece of wire. Find the middle of that wire piece and loop it around your round nose plier to make a little spiral full circle loop. Please look at the photo.
  4. Now bend your wire ends so that they form a "v" shape. Onto each wire end, string 8 round beads. Now position that "v" with beads in the inside of your beadable hoop and wire wrap the ends 5 - 6 times around the hoop frame. Please see photo. Trim off excess wire.
  5. Open a jump ring and connect onto it your Elliptic Cut pendant. Now loop it through the loop you made in the wire wrapped "v" that is attached to the beadable hoop already. Close the jump ring.
  6. Open another jump ring and link it to the top loop of the beadable hoop. Close the jump ring.
  7. Open another jump ring and connect it to the jump ring you just attached as well as the loop at the base of your earring hook. Close the jump ring.
  8. Repeat steps 1 - 7 to make your matched pair of earrings.
  9. Have fun wearing these!
