Spectra Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

The kaleidoscope effect of these earrings showcases a myriad of colors. Greens, blues and pinks all appear in harmonious balance, making them perfect for accenting a simple black dress at an elegant dance.

Step One: Use Gem-Tac permanent adhesive to glue the 12mm Swarovski rivoli in crystal vitrail medium into the 12mm TierraCast silver twister rivoli setting 1+3 link. Let dry.

Step Two: Thread a 4mm Swarovski XILION bicone in fuchsia AB on a 1-inch head pin. Finish with a simple loop. For help with simple loops visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Repeat twice. Set aside.

Step Three: Thread a 6mm Swarovski XILION bicone in dark indigo AB on a 1 1/2-inch eye pin. Finish with a simple loop and attach it to the outside loop on the 1+3 link. Repeat. Attach this second dangle to the other outside loop.

Step Four: Thread a 6mm Swarovski XILION bicone in fern green on an eye pin. Finish with a simple loop and attach it to the inside loop on the 1+3 link.

Step Five: Attach a fuchsia AB dangle from step two to the bottom of each eye pin.

Step Six: Attach the ball end earwire to the top loop on the 1+3 link.

Step Seven: Repeat steps one through six to create the second earring.
