Grandma's Black Diamond Earrings

PROJECT E507
Designer: Kathy Mannix
Skill Level: Beginner
There's nothing old fashioned about these Swarovski Rivoli and brass filigree earrrings.
Instructions
  1. Use your chain nose pliers to slightly bend up 3 corners of the square filigree (PND-7028). (HINT: the square is dapped or indented already so the corners will already be bent slightly upward)
  2. Lay the Rivoli crystal (SWC-9303) face up into the center of the square. It will lay right inside the dapped indentation nicely. Hold the rivoli with your fingers while you bend over 2 of the sides (opposite sides) pressing them gently on top of the rivoli crystal.
  3. Now take the bottom corner with your fingers and gently push it up against the, but not over the rivoli.
  4. Take your chain nose pliers and bend the tip of the bottom corner of the square back down slightly. This will allow you to hang a dangle.
  5. Open a 4mm jump ring (FJR-5347). Link on a filigree charm (PND-7114). Link onto the bottom of the square filigree corner. Close jump ring.
  6. Open the loop at the bottom of the leverback earring piece. Link on the top corner of your finished piece (FEA-6014) (see photo) Close loop.
  7. Repeat the steps above to make the second earring.
