I really like this Swarovski crystal color combination; garnet, light smoked topaz, mocca and smoked topaz. These silver plate earring findings are shiney, delicate and pretty!

1. Place each of your Swarovski Crystal bicones on a headpin.  Above each crystal, use your wire looping pliers to create a small loop. Trim the excess wire using your nipper tool.
2.  Use your chain nose jewelry pliers to open the eye of a silver plated French wire.  Dangle the silver plated double loop earring finding from it and use your pliers to gently close it again. 
3.  Use your pliers to open a jump ring.  Place it around both the top loop of your double loop earring finding and the loop you made above one of the two 6mm Swarovski bicones.  Close the jump ring, allowing the crystal to dangle. 
4.  Trim three links of chain off of your foot of chain using your nipper tool. Then, use your pliers and a jump ring to dangle those three links from the bottom loop of your earring finding.
5.  Begin hanging 4mm crystals from the three chain links and the jump ring from which they hang.  To do this, simply open the small loops you made in step 1 and carefully close it around the chain links.  Place the crystals in a random order but be sure to space the colors out well.  Use half of the 4mm crystals, which will total 15. The other 15 are for the matching earring, which you will make exactly the same way!

Boy, do I wish I had several of that finding! I love the earings as is, but what about substituting blue zircon, indicolite, montana and indian blue. Or gold with light topaz, sun, fire opal and light siam? I am going to try to duplicate these with some chain links and see what happens. Good work Kelly.

Questions and Answers

Q: I love this project, and can't wait to make them for my daughter-in-law for Christmas. Where in the HECK did you find the double hoop earring findings?! i have searched the internet to no avail!
Asked by: Pegro - 12/10/2014
A: We do not carry that finding anymore. You may be able to achieve the same effect by nesting to round links together.
