Earrings with Swarovski Crystal Headpins and Sterling Silver Beads

STEP 1
String one sterling silver 7x4mm saucer bead onto a SWAROVSKI ELEMENT rose headpin. Using a pair of round-nose pliers, chain-nose pliers and flush-cutters, form a simple loop on the straight end of the headpin, creating a rose crystal bead drop. Repeat to create eight rose crystal bead drops.

Repeat to create the following:
  • Six crystal AB crystal bead drops using one sterling silver 7x4mm saucer bead onto a SWAROVSKI ELEMENT crystal AB headpin
  • Six sapphire crystal bead drops using one sterling silver 7x4mm saucer bead onto a SWAROVSKI ELEMENT sapphire headpin
  • Four emerald crystal bead drops using one sterling silver 7x4mm saucer bead onto a SWAROVSKI ELEMENT emerald headpin
  • Eight tanzanite crystal bead drops using one sterling silver 7x4mm saucer bead onto a SWAROVSKI ELEMENT tanzanite headpin
  • Eight peridot crystal bead drops using one sterling silver 7x4mm saucer bead onto a SWAROVSKI ELEMENT peridot headpin
  • Eight amethyst crystal bead drops using one sterling silver 7x4mm saucer bead onto a SWAROVSKI ELEMENT amethyst headpin
STEP 2
Using flush-cutters, cut two 1-1/2 inch lengths of sterling silver 1.6mm cable chain.
STEP 3
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open the loop on a 5mm jumpring. Pass the jumpring through the first link on a 1-1/2 inch length of chain and the loop on a peridot crystal bead drop. Close the jumpring.
STEP 4
Open the loop on a rose crystal bead drop. Pass the loop through the first link on the 1-1/2 inch length of chain. Close the loop.

Repeat to attach twenty-three more bead drops to the 1-1/2 inch length of chain in a random pattern.

Open a 5mm jumpring. Pass the open jumpring through the last loop of the chain, then through the loop at the bottom of an earwire. Close the jumpring.
STEP 5
Repeat Steps 3 and 4 to create the second earring.
