Moonlit Bayou Earrings
This week’s idea incorporates olive and capri two tone fire polished crystals, olivine bicone crystals and midnight blue round pearls. There are oodles of vintage brass jump rings hanging off a vintage ridged ring charm. I just love this combination of cool colors together and they're perfect for the summer months. –Carolyn, Owner

Step 1. On 16 separate Head Pins, slide 6 Midnight Blue Pearls, 4 Olive/Capri Crystals, and 6 Olivine Bicone Crystals. . Form a simple loop above each bead by bending the wire 90 degrees with Flat Nose Pliers. Trim the excess wire with Side Cutters to leave 3/8 inch behind, then curl this into a tight loop with Round Nose Pliers.
Step 2. Using Flat Nose Pliers, twist open the loop at the bottom of the Ear Wires and slide it through one of the holes on the Vintage Ridged Ring. Twist the loop closed.
Step 3. Twist open one Jump Ring and slide it through the Head Pin loop on one of the Olive/Capri Crystals and through the large center opening of the Vintage Ridged Ring. Twist the Jump Ring Closed. Repeat this process, adding from left to right, in the following sequence: one Midnight Blue Pearl, one Olivine Bicone, one Midnight Blue Pearl, one Olivine Bicone, one Olive/Capri Crystal, one Olivine Bicone, and one Midnight Blue Pearl.
Step 4. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for the second earring. Enjoy!
