Enlightened Earring Tutorial

Created by: Rita Hutchinson

Designer Tips

  • Using a longer head pin allows for double "messy" wrapping at the top of each crystal.
  • Attach 4 crystal dangles to each of 6 jump rings. 2 extra jump rings face the charm in the right direction, and allow it to show from under the crystals.
  • For added interest, choose crystal bead colors for the dangles randomly.
