Survivor Awareness Ribbon Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Show the world that you are a survivor or support someone who is with these wonderful earrings! You can make them with beads of your cause's color; the colors in this design are just a suggestion.

Step one: Cut a piece of Soft Flex jewelry wire to approximately six inches. Put a Bead Stopper on one end of the wire. String sixteen 4mm Toho cube rainbow crystal lined light Capri beads. Add a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube to the beads. Run the other end of the wire in the opposite direction through the crimp tube. Pull the wires tight and crimp. For instructions on how to use crimp beads, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Trim the excess wire.

Step two: Attach a sterling silver awareness ribbon charm to the larger of the sterling silver jump rings. Attach the smaller jump ring to the first ring, slide the crimp tube portion of the bead loop into the open jump ring and follow with the earwire. Make sure the front of the earwire and the front of the charm are facing in the same direction. Close the jump ring. When you hold the earring up by the earwire, your earring should hang correctly.

Step three: Repeat steps one and two for a second earring.
