Shimmering Drop Earrings featuring Swarovski Crystals

PROJECT E905
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Featuring dazzling Swarovski crystals, these earrings are classically pretty and easy to wear with just about any outfit. The focal is a pretty light rose crystal chaton set into a Gita Jewelry finding. Hanging below the focal link is a petite Swarovski crystal pear pendant in crystal shimmer.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by setting your Swarovski crystal chaton into the Gita Jewelry link setting. You will use the popsicle stick to do this and can see how in the video: How to Make Earrings with Gita Settings for Swarovski Crystals. This video shows a different style of Gita setting but it is the same basic concept of how to set the prongs with a popsicle stick.
  2. Open a jump ring and link it to your pear pendant as well as one of the loops on the jewelry setting. Close the jump ring.
  3. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook and slip it onto the other loop of the jewelry setting. Close it back up. Make sure that the crystal is facing forward when you wear the earring.
