Thalia Sandals

Thalia Sandals Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

In Greek mythology, Thalia was one of the nine muses. Representing music, song and dance, she brought joy to those with whom she came into contact. These sandals represent that same lively spirit and joyous feeling. Wear them throughout the summer with your favorite sun dresses for a trend setting look.

The Crystal embellishments on these sandals inspired us to create the Vogue earrings.
We chose to use neutral colored crystals to match our sandals, but feel free to use our alternate components for a more lively combination.

Step One: Attach a 6.10mm sterling silver open jump ring to a 12mm Swarovski XILION pendant in Crystal Silver Shade. For help with jump rings visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Repeat 12 times. Attach a 6.10mm jump ring to a 12mm Swarovski XILION pendant in Crystal. Repeat 10 times.

Step Two: Create a chain of eight crystals, using a 6.10mm jump ring to link them together. Mix the two crystal colors randomly. Make sure that the crystals are all on the same side of the chain. Repeat two times.

Step Three: Connect the three chains together using jump rings. For the first three rows, use 6.10mm jump rings. For the remaining rows, use 7.35mm sterling silver open jump rings.

Step Four: Add two more Swarovski crystals to the top jump ring on each chain, giving you a jump ring containing three crystals.

Step Five: Sew the crystal cluster onto your sandal using a needle and silamide thread in the color that best matches. Stitch the jump rings onto the sandal across the top, bottom and a few places down the sides. Knot securely.

Step Six: Repeat steps one through five to create the second sandal.
