TechniqueChain & Jump Rings
Approximate Size4 Inches
All of these Opal Shimmer colors together are so springy and refreshing instead of using them in separate projects, I decided they needed to be all together in fabulous statement earrings!
The Swarovski Innovations for Spring/Summer 2021 include Opal Shimmer colors that speak to the beauty of spring flowers and the sparkle of fresh rain. These earrings combine multiple Opal Shimmer colors together in a color-blocked fringe look that's easy to accomplish. A unique TierraCast chandelier component adds to the trendy style.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
