Emily's Elegant Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

These beautiful earrings were originally made for Emily to wear in Maggie's Wedding, but we loved them so much, we wanted to offer them as an everyday elegant offering.

Step one: On a sterling silver eye pin, string a 3mm Swarovski faceted round bead followed by a light orange pearl nugget and another round bead. Finish with a simple loop. For instructions on how to make a simple loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Attach the dangle to the bottom of a French hook earwire.

Step two: On a sterling silver head pin, string a sterling silver flower outline bead cap followed by a 12mm Swarovski cosmic pendant and another bead cap. Finish with a simple loop. Attach the loop to the bottom of the eye pin dangle.

Step three: Repeat for the other earring.
Approximate size: 2 inches
Tip: There are only two of the nugget pearls used in this design, to save money, make the matching necklace and/or bracelet and use left over pearls for this project. That will bring the price down significantly.
