  • One Swarovski alexandrite 4mm bicone
  • One Swarovski Provence lavender ABX2 4mm bicone

STEP 6
Mix a small amount of Apoxie® Sculpt 2-part epoxy according to the package instructions.

Place one silver-finished hot-fix rhinestud upside down on your work surface. Roll a small ball of mixed Apoxie and place in the center of the rhinestud.

Place one beaded teardrop component on the epoxy, positioned so the beads are just under the rhinestud and the loop is just over.

Center one rhinestud over the bottom rhinestud, sandwiching the teardrop component. Press down on the top rhinestud slightly to ensure that the Apoxie envelops the component and is in contact with both rhinestones. Set aside and allow to cure completely.

Repeat with the second teardrop component.
STEP 7
Open one loop on the beaded link created in Step 1. Pass the loop through the loop of one teardrop beading component. Close the loop.

Repeat with the second link and teardrop component.
STEP 8
Open the loop on one silver-plated fishhook earwire. Pass the loop through the unused loop of one beaded link. Close the loop.

Repeat to complete the second earring.
