Step one: Begin by making the links for the dangles. On a 1-inch head pin, place a 5.5-6mm freshwater blue pearl. Finish with a simple loop. For detailed instructions on how to make a simple loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of our Learning Center.
Step two: Attach an eye pin to the loop and string a 4mm Swarovski cube crystal in crystal AB. Finish with a simple loop. Attach another eye pin, string a blue pearl, and finish with a simple loop. Attach that dangle to the 3-ring sterling silver multi-strand end piece on one end or the other.
Step three: Repeat steps one and two and attach to the other end of the end piece.
Step four: Cut a piece of sterling silver rolo chain to approximately 1½ inches. On one end use an eye pin to link a Swarovski crystal cube to the chain. String a blue pearl on a head pin and attach it to the cube link using a simple loop.
Step five: Attach the chain dangle to the end piece using a sterling silver open jump ring.
Step six: Attach the earring to a sterling silver earwire and repeat for the second earring.
