How to make crystal earrings?

Step1: Add on the Iron Earring Hook for your crystal earrings

Firstly, cut out a 100mm nylon wire and unfold it, then place the iron earring hook at the center position. After that, fix the earring hook by stringing one blue seed beads on each tip and then pass the wire tips cross through another one.

Step2: Make the dangling part of crystal earrings

As soon as you finished the easy step1, the next work is to make the dangling part.

At first, add three blue seed beads on each tip and cross through 6mm Abacus Glass Bead, finally tighten the wire.

Secondly, each tip string one 6mm Abacus Glass Bead and then cross through the 8mm Round Glass Bead.

Thirdly: repeat the first action; just replace the blue seed beads with the silver ones.

Fourthly: add on another one silver seed bead on each, then pick up the two wire tips and pull it and through the wire across to the starting Abacus Glass Bead.
