Instructions

Finished Size:4"

Step 1: Cut two 8" pieces, four 6" pieces, two 4" pieces, and four 3" pieces of Fluorite wire.

Step 2: Use both ends of one 8" piece of Fluorite wire to string 1 crimp tube. Adjust the tube so there is a small loop of wire. Pass one end of one 4" piece of Fluorite wire through the crimp tube, with the wire end just inside the tube. Crimp the crimp tube. Cover with 1 crimp cover. Braid the three wires together for 2 1/8". Use all three wire ends to string 1 large crystal round and 1 crimp tube. Snug the crystal and crimp up to the end of the braid and, crimp the crimp tube. Trim all three wire ends. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover.



Step 3: Use both ends of one 6" piece of Fluorite wire to string 1 crimp tube. Adjust the tube so there is a small loop of wire. Pass one end of one 3" piece of Fluorite wire through the crimp tube, with the wire end just inside the tube. Crimp the crimp tube. Cover with 1 crimp cover. Braid the three wires together for 1 5/8". Use all three wire ends to string 1 medium crystal round and 1 crimp tube. Snug the crystal and crimp up to the end of the braid, and crimp the crimp tube. Trim all three wire ends. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover. Repeat entire step.

Step 4: Use 2" of 24-gauge craft wire to form a wire-wrapped loop that attaches to 1 ear wire. String 1 small crystal round and the middle hole of 1 spacer bar. Form a wire-wrapped loop that attaches to the small wire loop formed in Step 2.



Step 5: Use 1 head pin to string one hole of the spacer bar (top to bottom) and 1 small crystal round. Form a wire-wrapped loop that attaches to one small wire loop formed in Step 3. Repeat entire step for the remaining hole of the spacer bar.

Step 6: Repeat Steps 2-5 for the second earring.
