Sophie's Starfish Earrings Instructions

Finish with a simple loop and attach to a sterling silver French hook earwire. For instructions on how to make a simple loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: Add a sterling silver starfish charm to the bottom loop of the earring.

Step three: Repeat the steps for a second earring.
