Martinique Sunset Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

These Martinique Sunset earrings use a brilliant cubic zirconia drop and a glittering silver ball to create a classy look. Once you finish these earrings, you can wear them with bright colors for spring and summer or dark colors for fall and winter. Best of all, these versatile earrings can be made in just minutes!

Step one: Using a 1 1/2 to 2-inch piece of sterling silver round 22 gauge half hard wire, form a wrapped loop around the 7x18mm cz faceted flat yellow teardrop. For help on how to make a wrapped loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: Finish the wire with a simple loop. Make sure to cut off any excess wire. Attach the loop to a sterling silver stardust 4mm ball post earring. Repeat steps one and two to complete the second earring.
