Think gifts. All those people on your To-Buy-For-The-Holidays List. You can make a few pairs of these earrings and get to crossing off some names.

You only need tiny daisy spacers and a few crystals. Even regular beads as a substitute for the crystals would work. Experiment and change up the design to make it your own.

Supplies Needed To Make One Pair Of Earrings

Image Hosting by PictureTrail.com

  • (72) tiny 4mm silver plated daisy spacers
  • (2) 8mm round crystals
  • (10) 4mm bicone crystals
  • (4) 2mm round silver beads
  • (2) CLOSED 3mm jump rings
  • (2) crimps & crimp covers
  • pair of earring hooks
  • stringing wire, size 12 

 
Step 1

Cut a length of stringing wire about 15″. (Make sure the wire when doubled will fit back through the 2mm bead and the crimp.) Put a bead stopper on one wire end or use an alligator clip like I used in the photo above.

Find the wire center and string in this order. Two 4mm bicone crystals, two tiny silver daisy spacers, one 8mm round crystal, two tiny silver daisy spacers and two 4mm bicone crystals. The larger crystal should be in the center.  The exposed wire on both sides should be even.

Step 2

String 16 tiny silver daisy spacers on one side of the 4mm bicones. Add a bead stopper or alligator clip to mark the center.

Now add 16 tiny silver daisy spacers on the other end of the wire next to the other two 4mm bicones.

Step 3

Take the right wire end and going left, string through crystals, spacers, large crystal, spacers, crystals and spacers. You should be completely around the left side and back to the middle where the clip is (bottom left) in the above photo.


Your wires should look like this.

Gently pull each wire end, easing them close together.

Step 4

Add one 2mm silver round bead to each wire end. Push down close to the daisy spacers. You want very little wire showing.

Now string in this order to BOTH WIRES. One 4mm bicone crystal, one crimp, one 3mm jump ring.

Loop both wires OVER the tiny jump ring and DOWN through the crimp and 4mm bicone.

Step 5

Slowly ease everything down the wire so you end up close to the two 2mm silver round beads. Keep the wire ends even as you push everything down. Tighten each wire end. BOTH wires should exit the underside of the TOP 4mm bicone crystal.

Look over your earring. If you are satisfied, go ahead and crimp the crimp bead. After crimping, give the jump ring a slight tug to make sure it is secure and the wire does not pull out.

Step 6

Open the loop on the fish hook and attach it to the jump ring.

You are almost finished. A few more things to do. You need to add a crimp cover. Position it carefully around the crimped bead. Make sure it is on straight and covers the crimped bead completely. Close up the crimp cover and trim off the excess wire.

Now you are ready to start on the second earring. 😀

Here are pictures of a set I made with Siam crystals. Earrings and matching ring. The base of the ring was made with sterling silver. I wirewrapped the wire on the sides right above the daisy spacers.

  1. Very pretty, Donna. Clean tutorial!

    How does the ring feel when on? I’ve always wondered about what they would feel like…

  2. don_mae says:

    Thanks, Michelle!! The spacer ring feels kind of bulky between the fingers. I think the next ones I make, I will put no spacers on the sides, just the bottom. Other than that, 😀 , they look beautiful on and are light.

  3. WOW! Very nice instructions!

  4. don_mae says:

    The earrings look great. I have been doing the rings for a long time. I use Stretch cord .7mm it makes the ring stretch so it fits a lot better. Great for people who have arthritis. I knot the end and put a crimp cover over the knot
