Cocktails at Five Instructions
Designed by Artbeads and Cheri Carlson

The holidays are the perfect time to add sparkle to your everyday wardrobe. Our designers came up with these fabulous earrings to spice up your style for a festive season or any time of the year. Choose the pair that suits your style best or make all three!

Siam Drop Earrings

Step one:
Slide a Swarovski 6000 13mm teardrop pendant in Siam onto the prongs of the JBB sterling silver fancy cone pinch bail and squeeze the bail shut with your fingers. Add the sterling silver fleur de lis lever-back earring to the ring of the bail and close the ring of the earring with pliers. Repeat this step for the other earring.

BeCharmed Earrings

Step one:
Cut two lengths of the 070 diamond cut rollo chain approximately 1 1/4 inches long each. Cut a three-inch length of 925/10 silver-filled round 20 gauge half hard wire and attach it to one of the chain lengths by creating a wrapped loop. For help creating wrapped loops, see our Handy Tip. Slide a TierraCast rhodium-plated pewter classic EuroBead aligner onto the wire, followed by a Swarovski 180201 15mm BeCharmed pavé bead with Crystal square fancy stones and another bead aligner. Attach the other chain length to the end by creating another wrapped loop. Step two:
Attach the ends of the chain lengths to the sterling silver stardust 6mm ball post earring using the sterling silver 3.05mm open jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, please refer to our Handy Tip Video. Repeat these steps for the other earring.

Owlet Earrings

Step one:
Cut three pieces of the sterling 050 diamond cut rollo chain in varying lengths to suit your style. Fold all three pieces of chain in half and loop them through one of the holes in the Swarovski 23mm owlet sew-on rhinestone in Crystal Silver Shade. Slip the ends through the chain loop to secure them.

Step two:
Slide a sterling silver 5.35mm open jump ring through the other open hole of the sew-on stone and attach it to the sterling silver 3.55mm open jump ring. Slide this jump ring into place on the plain interchangeable lever-back. Repeat these steps for the other earring.
