Designer Tips

  • For best way to open and close jump rings, and step-by-step instructions on making wire wrapped loops, see Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF).
  • Attach one of the larger gold-filled jump rings to a Swarovski edelweiss pendant, and attach to a textured gold-filled link. Use another one of the larger gold-filled jump rings to attach the first jump ring to the bottom of an ear wire.
  • Cut the chain into segments for the tassels: four 3-link chain segments, four 5-link chain segments, and two 7-link chain segments.

  • Place a light turquoise Swarovski bicone onto each gold-filled head pin.
  • Finish the top of each head pin with a wire wrapped loop (see Jewelry Basics 101).
  • Set your tassel pieces in order: short-medium-long-medium-short, and then use a small jump ring to attach each tassel piece to the bottom of a textured link.
  • Repeat for other earring. For an illustrated version of these instructions, see Tiffany's blog article.
