Create a gorgeous pair of crystal drop earrings in just two simple steps!
Using add-a-bead sterling silver hoop earrings, we will create a simple yet stunning pair of earrings that you can customize with any other Swarovski Crystal® beads or pendants. Each package of earrings contains 20 hoops (10 pairs of earrings) so feel free to create a variety of different designs using this simple tutorial.
- Swarovski Crystal Pendants:
- Ear Wires:
- STEP 1: Take one of your hoop earrings and hold the hoop with both hands, allowing the loop to face up towards the ceiling. Gently open the earring like a jump ring (DO NOT pull apart the hoop or you will risk destroying the circular shape of the earring) and slide one of your crystal pendants onto the hoop, FOIL SIDE first. Repeat the same step with your other crystal pendant and earring hoop.
- STEP 2: Now that your crystals are on the earring hoops, you need to bend the open end of the hoop up so that the earrings can close. To do this, grab your flat nose pliers and place them directly on the open end, and create a 90 degree angle with at least 5mm of hoop.
