Celtic Drop Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

These earrings are simple and inexpensive, but we won't tell!

Step one: Attach a 3.3mm sterling silver open jump ring to a silver antique (pewter) small eternity link and four links of 045 curb chain. Remember when using jump rings, always open them in a side to side motion.

Step two: Attach the other end of the chain to a sterling silver eye pin.

Step three: On the eye pin, encase a 6mm Swarovski crystal *alexandrite cube in two silver antique (pewter) beaded star bead caps. Finish with a wrapped loop. For detailed instructions on how to make a wire wrapped loop visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step Four: Attach the earring to the earwire by opening the loop at the bottom of the earwire.

Four easy steps and you have beautiful earrings to wear or give as a wonderful gift!
