Midnight Sky Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

These earrings mix golden hues with deep blue to make a wonderful reflection of the midnight sky. Click here for the matching necklace.

Step one: On a gold-filled head pin, string a 4mm gold Swarovski pearl followed by a light blue freshwater pearl, a dark blue lentil cat's eye bead, another freshwater pearl and finally a gold Swarovski pearl. Finish with a wrapped loop and attach the earring to a gold-filled earwire.

Step two: Repeat for the other earring.
Approximate size: 1 ¾ inches
Difficulty level: Beginner
