Vogue Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Perfect for a special night out, these glamorous "Vogue" earrings are dripping with brilliant Swarovski crystals for amazing sparkles that will captivate onlookers from across the room. Inspiration for this design came from the crystal embellishments on our Thalia Sandles learning center idea. Once our designer held up the embellishments, we all agreed they would make fabulous earrings.

Step one:
Attach a 0.90 x 6.10mm sterling silver open jump ring to a 12mm Swarovski 6428 XILION Pendant in Crystal. Repeat 17 times. For help using jump rings visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two:
Use five additional jump rings to link six of the crystal dangles into a chain. Make sure that the crystals are all on the same side of the chain. Repeat twice.

Step three:
Next, connect the three chains together using jump rings. Do this by connecting the jump rings together which do not hold crystals.

Step four:
Add two additional Swarovski crystals to the top jump ring on each chain so that each top jump ring contains a total of three crystals.

Step five:
Connect the top three jump rings together with an additional jump ring to create a cluster of crystals. Attach a 6mm sterling ball post earring to the jump ring you just added by opening the loop on the earring.

Step six:
Repeat steps one through five to create the second earring. These earrings are heavy and will sit best on the ear if they are backed with the white tone bullet clutch with comfort disc.
