Brook's Gift Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Carrie presented her bridesmaids with a choice of two sets of bridesmaid's jewelry each! Each one was unique and made to complement their personality. After much deliberation, they each chose the styles they liked best, thinking those were the items they got to keep. They were right, but Carrie also surprised them with a thank you gift of the second set of jewelry on her wedding day! Be sure to check out Brook's matching necklace and bracelet.

Step one: On a sterling silver head pin, string a small heishi spacer followed by a Swarovski aqua bicone and another heishi spacer.

Step two: Finish with a simple loop. Before you close the loop, attach the filigree link. Attach the link to the earwire. For help making a simple loop please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center.

Step three: Repeat steps one and two to make your second earring.
