Step 1

Gather your supplies

  • 14 Headpins (one for each crystal, except the two on top)
  • 16 Swarovski crystal beads in your choice of colors, shapes and sizes. I used blue colors in my design.  Add more crystals if you like!
  • A length of sterling silver wire (thin gauge to fit through bead holes)
  • 2 earwires, french hooks, leverbacks or posts (your choice)
  • Length of sterling silver chain

Step 2

String crystal beads onto headpins and attach to chain

Assemble all of your crystal beads, slide them onto headpins, and make a loop at the top with your round nose pliers.  If you need help learning how to do wire loops, follow these step by step instructions.

To start assembling the earrings, we will start with the bottom crystal bead.   Attach it to the bottom of the chain, and close it with a closed wire loop.

Next, attach the smaller crystals at different positions along the chain.  You will attach all of the crystals, with closed wire loops, except the top two crystals.


Step 3

Attach top crystal bead using wire loop technique

Cut a few inches of silver wire.  Use your round nose pliers to create a basic loop. If you need help learning how to do wire loops, follow these step by step instructions.   Attach the loop to the chain and make a closed wire loop.  Slide the crystal onto the wire and make another loop.  Attach the top loop to the earring component, and close it.
