Dragonfly Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Dragonfly earrings are always a great addition to your jewelry collection, but when made with Swarovski crystal, they are too cute for words!

Step one: Using a 2 inch sterling silver, 22 gauge head pin, string a 3mm aqua Swarovski crystal faceted bicone, followed by a 3.3mm corrugated saucer bead, a 4mm aqua Swarovski crystal faceted bicone, another corrugated saucer, a pair of antique silver (pewter) dragonfly wings and a 5mm aqua faceted round bead.

Step two: Attach the dragonfly to a sterling silver earwire with faceted cubic zirconia, using a simple loop. For detailed instructions on how to make a simple loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of our Learning Center.

Step three: Repeat steps one and two to make the second earring.

Simple and adorable, these earrings are going to be extremely popular!
