Cotillion Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

The multi-faceted chessboard beads on these Cotillion earrings give an air of elegance that will dress up your attire. They will look gorgeous whether you're wearing them for a formal event or an evening out.

Step one: Thread the following beads onto a sterling silver 22 gauge 3-inch head pin in order: a 4mm sterling round multi v-cut bead, a Swarovski 5005 12mm crystal chessboard bead, a Swarovski 5328 6mm XILION dark indigo AB bicone and a v-cut bead.

Step two: Use the remaining wire on the headpin to form a wrapped loop onto the loop of the 6mm cubic zirconia post earring. For detailed instructions on how to make a wrapped loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step three: Repeat steps one and two to create the second earring. Feel free to browse our website to find your choice of earring backs to add to this design.
