Guardian Angel Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

These adorable earrings are our favorite ones yet! The combination of Swarovski crystal and Czech glass make an irresistible pair. At this price, you can afford to make them for all your friends.

Step one: Using a 1½ inch, 22 gauge head pin, string a Pear shaped 8x11mm Rosaline 5821 Swarovski pearl with the widest end against the head of the pin. Follow that with an antique silver angel wing bead, with the wings pointing down. Add a 5mm faceted round Swarovski crystal AB, and finish with a 5mm silver and crystal roundelle halo.

Step two: Complete the earring with a simple loop and attach it to the earwire. For detailed instructions on how to make a simple loop, please visit the HANDY TIPS section of our web site. Add a rubber earwire clutch to the back of the earwire to prevent slipping.

Step Three: Repeat steps one and two to create your second earring. These angels make lovely pendants or charms as well.
