Get inspired by Swarovski design team's limitless imagination. Magical project ideas bring a new dimension to simple techniques.
Cut 35cm Tigertail with a side-cutter. Slide on the 13 Swarovski crystal Crystal Pearls article 5810 6mm alternating with 12 Swarovski crystal Pendants article 6007 7x4mm (starting with a Swarovski crystal Bead article 5000). Slide on a crimp tube after the crystals.
Go through the crystals and the crimping tube twice. Crimp the tube with crimping pliers as shown in the illustration.
Open a 5mm jumpring sideways with flat-nose pliers. Hang a 4mm jumpring onto the open 5mm jumpring and hang it on the earring (on the tube). Close the jumpring as shown.
Open the French earwire with flat-nose pliers. Attach it to the 4mm jumpring and close the earwire. Repeat steps 1 - 4 for the second earring.
