Carrie's Bridal Earrings Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

These stunning earrings take care to make, but are not nearly as complicated as they look. Make them for a wedding, a weekend away or just to add a touch of glitz to your office attire.

Step one: On a 1-inch ball head pin string a 3mm Swarovski White pearl and finish with a wrapped loop. For help making wrapped loops please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Attach a sterling silver open jump ring to the loop. For help with jump rings, click here. Repeat once. Hang one of the pearl dangles from the top center jump ring on the sterling silver filigree 2-layer crescent chandeliers. And the other from the center bottom loop of the chandelier.

Step two: On a head pin string a 3mm faceted Aquamarine round crystal and attach it to one of the loops on the chandelier with a wrapped loop. Repeat three more times for the remaining loops.

Step three: Attach the top center jump ring of the finished chandelier to the sterling silver 4mm stardust ball ear post and earring back.

Step four: Repeat the steps to make the second earring.
