Instructions
Remember to double these instructions to create your matched pair of earrings

  2. String a 1.5", 22 gauge sterling silver head pin with a 4 mm Swarovski crystal bicone bead, then with your beaded bead, and then with another bicone bead. Use a pair of wire looping pliers to create a simple wire loop after the second bicone bead.
  3. Use a pair of flush cutters to cut a 2" length of 1.4 mm sterling silver delicate cable chain.
  4. Use a 3 mm, 22 gauge sterling silver jump ring to attach one end of the chain to the wire loop on your head pin. Then use a second jump ring to attach the other end of the chain to a sterling silver shepheard's crook square wire earring hook.
