Designer Tips

  • Using one eye pin, attach one Chinese Lu Charm to the bottom.
  • Slide on one 6mm gold bicone crystal, one 10mm Rouge pearl, and one 6mm gold bicone. Make a simple loop to close. (Use 1-step looper or see Jewelry Basics 101 - PDF).
  • Attach ear wire.
  • Repeat for other earring.
  • Note: Aurum 2x (bright gold) bicone beads are not always available, so we've linked in 2 other 6mm gold bicone bead options below as optional substitutes.
