Earthy Shimmer Earrings Tutorial
Created by: Rita Hutchinson
The Swarovski design team's favorite pairing for Ochre DeLite is Light Topaz Shimmer, and for Cappuccino DeLite, we like Light Colorado Topaz shimmer. (All the Shimmer and Delight colors are mercurial, and tough to capture in photographs and illustrations!)

Make the loops on the beaded connector section perpendicular to each other in order for the rivolis to hang in the right direction. For instructions on making beaded loops, see Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF). If they aren't perfectly perpendicular, use a pair of flat-nose pliers on each loop and gently twist to 90 degrees.
