Long Teardrop Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Long is in, and big is back! This long teardrop earring is just the thing for your teen or your mom this season! Add some sparkle to your evening wear or school clothes.

Step one: Wrap a flat teardrop pendant with a wire bail. For detailed instructions on how to make a wire bail for a pendant please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: Make two links with 5mm Swarovski faceted round fuchsia beads, and one with a 4mm faceted round crystal bead. To make the links simply cut a piece of sterling silver 22 gauge half hard wire to about one and a half inches. Put a single loop in one end, string the bead and finish with another single loop. For detailed instructions on how to make a single loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step three: Connect your links starting with the teardrop, then adding a fuchsia, crystal and fuchsia link with the final one connecting to a sterling silver earwire.

Step four: Repeat steps one through three to make your second earring.
