Flirty Earring Project

Pastel colored Swarovski Crystals pair up to make this spring themed drop earrings.
1) Take the 6mm open jump ring and use this to attach the Crystal Silver Shade Briolette Pendant to the 10mm closed jump ring. Open the loop at the base of one of the earwires, and attach this to the 10mm closed jump ring as well. Make sure all items attached to the closed jump ring are closed completely.

2) Pick up four headpins and thread one Swarovski pearl, a Chrysolite Opal round, a White Opal round, and one Fuchsia Bicone onto each. Take one headpin at a time and make a simple loop with the remaining wire. Before closing the loop completely, attach it to the 10mm closed Jump ring on either side of the Crystal Silver Shade Briolette. Make a simple loop with the three remaining beaded headpins and attach these randomly to the 10mm closed jump ring as well.

3) Repeat steps #1 and #2 to create the other earring keeping in mind that you can follow the pattern that you created on the first earring to create the other earring, or you can attach each of the beaded headpins to this second earring in a different, random pattern than you did the first. Remember, if you want to change the bead 'line-up' on the earring, simply open the simple loop and rearrange the beads!
