Alyssa's Bridesmaid Earrings Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

These wonderful earrings were made for Maggie's wedding, but Alyssa loved them so much, she made them a part of her everyday wardrobe. For the matching necklace, please click here. For the bracelet, please click here.

Step one: On a 2-inch sterling silver eye pin, string a wavy rectangle bead frame with a 2mm Swarovski Rose faceted round bead followed by a 12mm Swarovski Light Amethyst cosmic bead and another 2mm round. String it through the other side of the bead frame and finish with a simple loop. Attach one end to an earwire using a simple loop. For instructions on how to make simple loops, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Using the wire you trim from the end of the head pin, create a link with simple loops on each end and an 8mm Swarovski Powder Rose pearl in the center. On a 1½ inch head pin, string a 12mm Swarovski Amethyst cosmic bead. Finish with a simple loop and attach to the bottom of the pearl link.

Step three: Repeat for the other earring.
