Dancing Spirals Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

If you want to wear chandelier earrings without all the bulk and boldness of the typical styles, these earrings are right for you!

Step one: Create three links by stringing an individual Swarovski 4mm olivine faceted round on a 3/4-inch eye pin and finishing with a simple loop. For detailed instructions on how to make a simple loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Do the same with one 4mm Swarovski faceted round burgundy bead. Use the same technique using head pins and make two with olivine rounds and one burgundy.

Step two: Attach one of the olivine links with two loops to an earwire on one end and the top of the chandelier component on the other. On the bottom loops you will attach the other three 2 loop links. The olivine with go on the outermost loops and the burgundy in the center.

Step three: On the bottom of these links you will Attach the sterling silver spiral links. On the bottom of those links add the links that you created on the headpins. Again, you will have the burgundy in the center and olivine on the outside loops.

Step four: Repeat all steps for the second earring.
