METHOD:

1:  Set all Swarovski Crystals in corresponding settings.

     TIP: When setting the stones groove out the same shape (i.e. cone shaped) as the setting in a piece of  timber and sit the setting into this place the stone in the setting and close the prongs using the prong pusher or a flat piece of metal.

 

2: Lay the Lt. Amethyst setting out 4 x 4. make sure the bottom row is 2x 4 ring settings and 2 x 3 ring settings alternately.

 

3: When you have done this, fold the 2 edges together and join using small jump rings.

 

 

 

4: Next join two loops at the top of the tube with an oval jump ring. Make sure that they line up with the 4 ring settings at the base of the tube. Also connect the Swarovski ring into the oval jump ring at the same time.

 

5: Using another oval jump ring connect the earring stud to the Swarovski ring.

 

6: Join the two 2-ring settings to the bottom loops (these will be the 4 ring settings) of the earring.

 

7: Using an oval jump ring connect the Swarovski Pear Drop to the bottom 2 loops.

 

8: Place the earring clutch on the back of the stud.
