Carnaby Street Earrings Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Inspired by the independent London boutiques that occupy this fashionable street, these colorful earrings light up with Swarovski gemcolor pearls and eye-catching crystals. This simple design takes just minutes to make!

Step one:
Thread one Swarovski 6mm XILION bicone in Crystal Luminous Green onto one gold-filled 020 1-inch head pin and finish with a simple loop technique.

Step two:
Thread one Swarovski 8mm round pearl in Ivory, one Swarovski 10mm round pearl in Pink Coral, one Swarovski 8mm XILON bicone in Crystal Luminous Green, one Swarovski 12mm briolette bead in Crystal Luminous Green and one Swarovski 14mm round large-hole pearl in Jade onto their own gold-filled 1.5-inch eye pin. Finish each with a simple loop.

Step three:
Create a chain with the simple loops to connect the beads in this order: the 14mm Jade pearl, the 12mm briolette bead, the 10mm Pink Coral pearl, the 8mm Crystal Luminous Green bicone, the 8mm Ivory pearl and the 6mm Crystal Luminous Green bicone. Attach the open loop of the Jade pearl to one satin hamilton gold-plated plain French hook earwire.

Repeat these steps to create a second earring.
