Christy's Bridesmaid Earrings Instructions


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. The girls made their choices, and here is what Christy picked! Don't forget to check out the matching bracelet and necklace.

Step one: Cut approximately four inches of ZambaPro™ jewelry wire. On one end, add a Bead Stopper and string a 2x2mm crimp tube followed by a sterling silver double curved stardust link, three 3mm Swarovski faceted round crystal beads, another stardust spacer, a Swarovski 4mm crystal faceted round bead, 4mm aqua bicone, another crystal round and tow stardust spacers. Add the Lillypilly mother of pearl round pendant, run the wire through the other side of the stardust spacer that is just above the pendant. String a round crystal, aqua bicone, crystal, bicone and crystal then run the wire back through the crimp tube and the other side of the original stardust bead.

Step two: Crimp the crimp tube to hold the earring in place and trim any excess wire. For help using crimp tubes please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center.

Step three: Link a sterling silver jump ring through the top of the earring design and the bottom of the earwire. Repeat all steps for the second earring.
