Designer Tips

  • This design uses the TierraCast hook clasp as a design element on the earrings rather than as a necklace or bracelet clasp.
  • To avoid breakage, gently close the bails on the crystal pendants with your fingers.
  • Slide the bail and crystal over the hook clasp, and gently squeeze the clasp closed so the bail won’t fall off.
  • Design Option: Change the look by using a different color or size crystal spike.
  • This project is inspired by CREATE YOUR STYLE’s "Hooked on Spikes" earrings.
