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 also make these earrings in gold and with your favorite color of PRESTIGE crystal 10mm Cushion fancy stones.
  1. Begin by placing a small dab of E6000 glue into your Cushion stone bezel settings. Then set your fancy stones into the glue and let fully dry. Do this for all your components for both earrings. Once dry, proceed onto the next step.
  2. Place 1 Olive bead onto an eye pin and then create a simple wire loop immediately after it. Trim excess wire.
  3. Open the simple wire loop you made in the previous step and connect it onto the bezel pendant. Close the loop. You can open and close simple wire loops just like jump rings.
  4. On the other side of the Olive bead link, open that loop and connect it to one of the loops on one side of your bezel link. Close the loop. Make sure that your stones are all facing forward.
  5. Finally, open the loop at the base of your earring hook and connect it to the top loop of your bezel link. Close the loop back up.
  6. Repeat steps 2 - 5 to make your matched earring.
  7. Enjoy!
