Shiny Disco Balls Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Light up the night with these simple yet stylish earrings! Their dramatic shimmer is perfect for an elegant night out.

Step one:
Thread one 14mm Beadelle silver-plated crystal round pavé beads onto one 2-inch 20 gauge head pin, and thread one 10mm beadelle gunmetal-plated crystal round pavé bead onto one 20 gauge 1-inch eye pin. Finish each with a simple loop.

Step two:
Connect the two loops together to form a chain and then attach the remaining loop of the gunmetal-plated bead to one sterling silver open jump ring. Watch our Handy Tip video on how to use a jump ring if you need help.

Step three:
Attach the jump ring to one sterling silver earwire with gold-filled ball.

Repeat these steps to create a second earring.
