Instructions

Remember to double these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  1. Cut a 4" length of your sterling silver beading chain.
  2. Thread the tail of one end of chain into the sterling silver crimp bead with the single loop. Push the tail into the crimp bead so that it is just to the point of coming out the other end, but it does not. For this design, I chose to not crimp the bead in the traditional way, but instead just flatten it with my chain nose pliers. I liked the look better for the design. You can either crimp your bead in the traditional way or just use your chain nose pliers to flatten it, thus trapping your beading chain inside. Make sure to press firmly.
  3. String onto you beading chain: 1 Swarovski Crystal 8mm round faux pearl in rose peach, 1 Swarovski Crystal 6mm round bead in pacific opal, another pearl, another round bead, and another pearl.
  4. Attach a crimp bead with loop to the other end of your beading chain (do this the same way you attached the first).
  5. Slide both of the loops attached to the crimp beads onto your sterling silver sleek shepherd crook earring hook.
  6. That's it! So very easy!
