Jonquil Mist Earrings Instructions Designed by Cheri Carlson
These elegant earrings feature dark gunmetal leaves that brush against Jonquil Swarovski crystal rhinestones. These earrings are fancy enough for formal occasions, yet playful enough for a night out. Try creating them as a fun accessory for Mother's Day. If you're looking for a set, these earrings work perfectly with the matching Jonquil Mist Necklace.
Step one: Using 5-minute two-part epoxy, glue together the backs of two Swarovski 17mm pendular lochrose sew-on rhinestones in Jonquil so that their holes line up. Repeat. Let these crystal dangles dry.
Step two: Cut a 1-inch piece of gunmetal-plated leaf chain. Attach a crystal dangle to the end of the chain using a 6mm gunmetal-plated 18 gauge open jump ring. Starting from the opposite end of the chain, count four links. Attach a gunmetal-plated plain earwire to the fourth link. Repeat to create the second earring.
