Lisa's Gift Earrings Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Carrie presented her bridesmaids with a choice of two sets of bridesmaid's jewelry each! Each one was unique and made to complement their personality. After much deliberation, they each chose the styles they liked best, thinking those were the items they got to keep. They were right, but Carrie also surprised them with a thank you gift of the second set of jewelry on her wedding day! Be sure to check out Lisa's matching necklace and bracelet.

Step one: On a 1-inch 24 gauge head pin string a Swarovski 3mm round Capri blue crystal and a Swarovski 8mm roundelle mocca crystal. Attach to the center hole on the sterling silver large hoop French hook chandelier earring with a wrapped loop. For help making wrapped loops please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center.

Step two: On a head pin string a Capri blue crystal. Attach to one of the outside holes on the earring with a wrapped loop. Repeat for the remaining hole on the earring.

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