Lotus Blossom Earrings Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Soft, iridescent shells complement glinting crystals on these lotus blossom hoop earrings. The earrings use light green shades to create a fresh feel of the outdoors. They're perfect for nature lovers and anyone else who enjoys playing in the sunshine.

Step one:
String the following components onto the 1 1/2-inch endless beading hoop in the order listed: a Swarovski 6mm bicone pendant in Peridot, a Swarovski 6mm bicone pendant in Greige, a Peridot pendant, a Greige pendant and a Peridot pendant.

Step two:
Make a bend approximately 1/4-inch from the end of the beading hoop so that the end of the hoop points up. Thread the end through the hole on the hoop. Turn the end into a small simple loop.

Step three:
Turn the simple loop on the sterling silver earwire with 3mm round in Peridot 90 degrees. This will allow the earring to hang properly. Attach the earwire to the hoop using a 3.3mm sterling silver open jump ring.

Step four:
Link three 4.6mm sterling silver open jump rings like a chain onto a 15mm blacklip round pendant with flower outline. Connect the last jump ring to the 3.3mm jump ring already on the earring. Repeat these steps to create the second earring.
