Mykonos Earrings Instructions Designed by Teri McCamish
Imagine yourself on the Mediterranean when you add these flashy earrings to your style. The teardrop-shaped crystals encompass the deep blue and light turquoise colors that are usually found in Grecian beaches. Wear these earrings with everyday looks to instantly transport your style to an exotic coast where white stucco walls are topped with blue domes baking in the high afternoon sun. It's the perfect way to add a touch of luxury to any look.
Step one: Attach three Swarovski 24mm faceted teardrop pendants in Crystal Bermuda Blue to the bottom of a JBB antique brass small curly with heart chandelier using three TierraCast medium oval brass oxide pewter open jump rings. See our Handy Tip Video for more help with using jump rings. Be sure to open your jump rings wide enough to pass through the stringing hole in the crystal. The crystal can chip at the hole if forced to accept the jump ring.
Step two: Attach an antique brass-plated lever-back earring to the top of the chandelier. Repeat steps one and two to create the other earring.
