Retired - Ice Cream Social Earrings

PROJECT E1021
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Beginner
These adorable little earrings feature tiny enameled ice cream cones with little Swarovski crystal accents for a pop of color. Show off your inner child this summer.
Instructions
Don't forget to double these instructions to create your matched pair of earrings.
  1. Place a 3mm Swarovski crystal bicone bead in caribbean blue opal onto a silver plated 1.5", 22 gauge head pin. Use a pair of wire looping pliers to create a simple loop after the bead, trimming off the excess. Repeat with another bead in caribbean blue opal, then with two in citrine, and then with two in rose, to make a total of 6 little beaded drops.
  2. Open a silver plated 7mm, 20 gauge jump ring. Place three of your crystal drops onto the ring, then place a silver plated and enamel ice cream cone charm onto the ring, then the other three crystal drops, then a silver plated stud earring ball post, and close the jump ring.
  3. Place a silver plated earring back onto the back of the earring post.
