Retired - First Blush Earrings

PROJECT E7061
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
Dainty Swarovski crystal hearts dangle from lengths of delicate pearl chain in these lightweight, love-centric earrings.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Using flush cutters, cut the pearl off of the last link in your length of pearl chain. Then cut 1 complete inch of pearl chain.
  2. String the freestanding pearl from the previous step onto a head pin. Then string 1 Swarovski crystal heart bead with the top of the heart pointing up. Make a simple wire loop and cut off the excess wire.
  3. Open the wire loop from the previous step the same way you would open a jump ring. Slide on the loop on one end of your 1 inch length of pearl chain. Close the wire loop.
  4. Open the loop of one post earring finding. Slide on the loop on the other end of your pearl chain. Close the earring loop. Enjoy your earrings!
