The Last Black Unicorn - Earrings Tutorial
Swarovski's Rainbow Dark and Scarabaeus Green are both intense iridescent colors, that go surprisingly well together. I love how easy it is to use the 2-hole "sew-on" drops as links for earrings. Simply hook them together with large jump rings, and slip the top onto a hoop-style ear wire!

Use large sterling silver sparkle-wire jump rings to connect all the crystals together. For best way to open and close loops, see Jump Ring Hint in Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF)
I love the convenience and quality of the sterling silver Euro Clip, but they are a little pricey (and not always in stock). So I linked a couple of alternate options below: a 12mm sterling silver hoop, and a long-leg ear wire (make a large custom loop with the long leg).
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are no longer available, so we've moved the whole project into the "Misc Jewelry Tutorials with Issues" area while we decide what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make this project, or retire the tutorial.

1 pair #34-586 Sterling Silver Leverback Ear Wire, Oval ... or, if these are out of stock, 12mm Sterling Silver Plain Hoops also work nicely, or the #34-560-14 sterling silver French hook with long leg (make a large custom loop out of the bottom).
