Merry and Bright Earrings Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
In these earrings, festive colors are the focal point! A Swarovski rivoli in Crystal Scarabaeus Green takes center stage, while bicones from our Artbeads Designer Blend dance around it, creating glittering style everyone will notice. These earrings come together in no time, so learn how to make them today!
Step one: String a bicone from the Swarovski 4mm Bicone Garden Glory Designer Blend onto a 1-inch 22 gauge sterling silver head pin. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the bead. Repeat nine times for a total of ten dangles.
Step two: Add the Swarovski 14mm rivoli in Crystal Scarabaeus Green to the JBB antique silver-plated brass 14mm round bezel charm. Fold the prongs on the back of the bezel down over the stone once it is in place.
Step three: Open a sterling silver 6.10mm open jump ring and add the dangles you created, followed by a ball end earwire. Close the jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see our Handy Tip Video. Add a sterling silver 4.30mm open jump ring to the top of your rivoli charm. Link two more 4.30mm jump rings to that jump ring to form a chain. Attach the last jump ring added to the 6.10mm jump ring, at the middle of your dangles. Repeat steps one through three to create the other earring.
