Classic Bridal Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

These delicate delights were made for Maggie's Wedding. They are wonderful for any bride or bridesmaid but if there is no wedding coming up, make them for a day at the beach or a night on the town! Click here for the matching necklace.

Step one: String one 3mm powder rose pearl on each of two head pins. Make a simple loop to attach them to the two rings in the center of your vermeil filigree 2-layer crescent chandelier. For instructions on how to make a simple loop, please see the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: String the pattern of a 4mm Swarovski powder rose pearl followed by a 5mm Swarovski topaz and silver roundelle and a 4.5mm Swarovski light rose simplicity bead on two separate head pins. Attach these pins with simple loops to the outside loops of the bottom crescent of the earring. In the center ring, just attach a 4mm Swarovski powder rose pearl with a simple loop.

Step three: Open the bottom loop of the ear wire using a side to side motion and slide the chandelier into the loop then close.

Step four: Repeat all steps for the second earring.
