I have to warn you… these earrings are a little bit of a pain in the butt to make.
That said, they are totally worth it.
You’ll spend less than $10 making them, (and maybe 1/2 hour) and everyone will think they are DANNIJO or some other fancypants brand. In this case, I was inspired by this pair of Loren Hope earrings… I’ve seen earrings like this before but loved that they used box chain vs. a more simple chain… box chain is my favorite chain right now – is it nerdy that I have a favorite?
6 Sew On Swarovski Crystals // 2 4mm Silver Jump Rings // 2 Silver Ear Wires
Begin by stringing on your first two crystals onto the wire. I strung through the BOTTOM hole of the pink stones, and the TOP hole of the square. You’ll see that the order is important as the project progresses.
Add your third stone first weaving through the BOTTOM hole, and then bringing the wire through the TOP hole.
From there, string on your box chain.
Add on the bead, and then the box chain, and then weave your wire through the TOP hole of the second pink rhinestone. From there, snip the ends of the wire and tuck them into the back of the rhinestone where they can’t be seen.
Trim your chain to the desired length using wire nippers.
Attach the box chain to a jump ring, and then to an ear wire.
Voila.. all done!
