Retired - Crystal Dream Earrings

PROJECT E624
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Create a pair of earrings to be treasured. Using Sterling Silver and stunning Swarovski crystals, these earrings are classic in design and of superior quality. Colors of crystal AB, vintage rose, and lustrous silver
Instructions
  1. Remember to double these directions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  2. The primary technique we will be using for making these earrings is that of creating wrapped wire loops. Watch this video to see how to make wrapped wire loops.
  3. Onto a 1" sterling silver head pin, place 1 Swarovski 3mm round bead in crystal AB, 1 Swarovski 5mm bicone bead in vintage rose AB, and 1 Swarovski 4mm rondelle in crystal AB. Make the loop part of a wrapped wire loop but before doing the wrapping, place into the loop the middle bottom hoop on your sterling silver chandelier earring finding. Continue making your wrappings, thus fastening your dangle to your finding. Cut off any excess wire with flush cutters.
  4. Onto another 1" sterling silver head pin, place 1 Swarovski 5mm bicone bead in vintage rose AB and 1 Swarovski 4mm rondelle in crystal AB. Make the loop part of a wrapped wire loop but before doing the wrapping, place into the loop one of the side bottom hoops on your sterling silver chandelier earring finding. Continue making your wrappings, thus fastening your dangle to your finding. Repeat this step another 3 times, thus filling all the bottom hoops of your chandelier earring finding.
  5. Make another dangle identical to those you just made in the previous step and attach this one to the top middle interior hoop of your chandelier earring finding.
  6. Create 2 more dangles (again using the wrapped wire loop technique), each one just composing of a single Swarovski 3mm round bead in crystal ab. Attach one to each side of the dangle you made in the previous step, hooking them to that middle interior hoop of the chandelier finding.
  7. Take your sterling silver french wire earring hook and open the loop at the base the same way you would open a jump ring. Attach it to the top most exterior hoop of the chandelier earring finding. Close the loop back up.
  8. May you enjoy your earrings for years to come!
