Instructions

Finished Size: 2 1/8"


Step 1: Use 1 head pin to string 1 crystal round. Form a wire wrapped loop. Repeat once to form a second crystal dangle. Set aside.

Step 2: Cut six 10" pieces of wire.

Step 3: Hold three wires together and place a Bead Stopper on the ends of the wires.

Step 4: Use all three wires to string 1 crimp tube. Braid the three wires together. Use the wire ends to pass back through the crimp tube. Place a Bead Stopper on the wire ends.

Step 5: Remove the first Bead Stopper. Use the wire ends to string 1 crystal dangle and pass back through the crimp tube (the wire should form a figure 8). Place the Bead Stopper back on the wire ends. Adjust the crimp tube and wire so that there is a small loop of braided wire on top of the crimp tube, with a loop of wire about twice its size and the crystal dangle below the tube, and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with a crimp cover.

Step 6: Attach 1 ear wire to the small top loop.

Step 7: Repeat Steps 3-6 for the second earring.
