Tiffany Bleu Crystal Earrings Tutorial
Created by: Sondra Barrington
- Use two-part epoxy to glue the rivolis into the settings and allow to cure.
- Wire wrap all pearl and crystal beads before assembling.
- Make alternating pearl and crystal charm garland using jump rings.
- Attach two or three charms to each jump ring all the way down the chain in a pleasing order.
- Each earring uses 7 jump rings for the garland chain and 2 jump rings to attach the ear wire to the rivoli.
- Use the Chain Sta to hold the garland dangle when attaching additional charms.
- Using flat nose pliers slightly straighten the end of the ear wire. This will allow one crystal and one hogan bead to easily slide onto the wire.
