Something Blue Ear Threads Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

If you have something borrowed, old and new, but are still seeking something blue, let us recommend this simple yet elegant threader earring design.

Step one: Begin with a sterling silver U top ear thread bead chain with ring. On a 1½ inch sterling silver 22 gauge head pin string a silver antique (pewter) bead cap, followed by a 10mm light blue Swarovski pearl, and another bead cap.

Step two: Attach the link to the ear thread using a simple loop. For detailed instructions on how to make a simple loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

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