Dream Catcher Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

The sterling silver links and turquoise Swarovski crystals lend a Native American feel to these earrings.

Step one: On a sterling silver 1 1/2-inch head pin string a Swarovski 4mm faceted round turquoise crystal and a Czech glass hexagon crystal w/ Picasso bead. Finish with a simple loop. For help making a simple loop please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Attach it to the bottom loop on the sterling silver eclipse link.

Step two: On a sterling silver 1-inch head pin string a Swarovski 6mm faceted round turquoise crystal. Finish with a simple loop. Attach it to the top center hole above the circular opening of the silver link.

Step three: Attach the top loop of the link to a sterling silver ball end earwire.

Step four: Repeat the steps to make the second earring.
