Swarovski rivolis in jet are set inside TierraCast rivoli findings. Jet Swarovski crystals in a variety of shapes and sizes dangle beneath to create a pair of contemporary yet classic chandelier earrings.

  1. Put a small drop of glue in the rivoli finding. You will want this glue to be applied to the point of the rivoli, so try to get your glue as close to the center as possible. Use tweezers to gently drop the rivoli into place. Make sure it is centered in the finding. Repeat this with the other rivoli and rivoli finding. Allow about 30 minutes to 1 hour dry time.
  2. On an eye pin, pick up a rondelle. Make a simple loop running perpendicular to the existing loop. Attach the loop to the center loop on the rivoli finding. Close the loop.
  3. On a headpin, pick up a bead cap, round bead and a bead cap. Make a simple (rosary) loop. Attach this loop to the loop beneath the rondelle. Close the loop.
  4. On an eye pin, pick up a 4mm bicone. Make a simple loop running perpendicular to the existing loop. Attach the loop to one of the end loops on the rivoli finding. Close the loop.
  5. On a headpin, pick up a bead cap and a 6mm bicone. Make a simple loop. Attach it to the loop at the bottom of the 4mm bicone. Close the loop.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 on the other loop.
  7. Open the loop on an ear wire. Attach it to the loop at the top of the rivoli finding. Close the loop.
  8. Repeat steps 2 through 7 to complete the pair.
