Citron Drops Earrings Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Like a refreshing glass of lemonade, these warm golden earrings will liven up looks and quench them with a sweet splash of sparkle. Their youthful palette is perfect for a spring or summer wedding.

Step one:
Attach one Swarovski 17mm briolette pendant in Jonquil to one gold-filled 14K open jump ring. If you need help with jump rings, watch our Handy Tip video available in the Learning Center.

Step two:
Thread one gold-filled 2-inch eye pin with one Swarovski 6mm briolette bead in Jonquil, one 6mm gold-filled round stardust bead and another briolette bead. Finish the open end with a wrapped loop and attach this loop to one gold-filled French earwire with 3mm stardust bead.

Step three:
Attach the other end of the eye pin to one Swarovski 6mm gold-plated Jonquil 2-ring channel. Connect the jump ring from Step one to the open ring of the channel.

Repeat these steps for the other earring.
