Summer Sun Chandeliers Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
Bright and playful, these earrings mix Swarovski style with the delicate filigree of our chandelier earrings. This design is sunny and warm as all your summer styles should be!
Step one: String a 6mm jonquil Swarovski butterfly on a ¾-inch eye pin and attach it to an open jump ring with a simple loop. For detailed instructions on how to make a simple loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of our Learning Center. Attach the jump ring to the bottom of a French hook earwire. Attach the bottom of the wire to the top loop of the chandelier earring.
Step two: String one 4mm Swarovski faceted bicone in fire opal on each of three head pins. Attach one to the center loop on the inside of the chandelier earring using a simple loop. Attach the other two to the outermost loops on the bottom of the chandelier.
Step three: String one 4mm Swarovski fire opal bicone on an eye pin and attach it to the center loop of the chandelier. String a 6mm Swarovski light Siam butterfly bead and attach it to the loop of the eye pin using a simple loop.
