Frost's Fire Earrings Instructions Designed by Cheri Carlson
Inspired by the themes in Eclipse, the third book in Stephanie Meyer's popular Twilight series, our designers created a pair of earrings filled with contrast and drama. A true combination of fire and ice, the opposing components in these earrings, provide a wonderful balance. You're sure to be complimented on this set that has bold red and orange crystals accenting a crystal clear pendant.
Step One: On a one-inch head pin, string a 6mm Swarovski faceted round in fire opal. Finish with a simple loop. For help with simple loops visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Repeat twice. Set aside.
Step Two: On a head pin, string a 6mm Swarovski XILION bicone in light Siam copper. Finish with a simple loop. Repeat twice. Set aside.
Step Three: On a head pin, string a 4mm Swarovski faceted round in fire opal. Finish with a simple loop. Repeat four times. Set aside.
Step Four: Attach a 20mm avant-garde crystal pendant to a sterling silver open jump ring. For help with jump rings visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Use two more jump rings to create a chain to attach to the .8mm ball end earwire. Connect a crystal dangle from step two to the earwire.
Step Six: Attach the crystal dangles in steps one through three to the jump rings as you see fit.
Step Seven: Repeat steps one through six to complete the other earring.
