Candy Corn Earrings With Swarovski

Instructions

Step 1: Cut wire into two equal pieces 18” long.

Step 2: Load onto one piece of wire 13 Swarovski XILION Beads art. 5328 4 mm Sunflower. Moving 6 Beads off to one side and keeping the 7 remaining Beads in the center of the wire, take the wire exiting from the 6 Beads and string the wire through all 7 Beads. (Note: the wire tails should be exiting in opposite directions from the 7 Beads.

The 6 Beads should be sitting on top of and in between the 7 Beads art. 5328 Sunflower. It is important to keep tension on the wire when weaving.)

Step 3: String onto one of the wire sides, 5 Beads art. 5328 4 mm Hyacinth. Take the wire from the side with no Beads and string the wire through the 5 Beads. (Note: the wire tails should be exiting in opposite directions from the 5 Beads art. 5328 Hyacinth and the 5 Beads should be sitting on top and in between the 6 Beads art. 5328 Sunflower from the previous step.)

Step 4: Repeat step 3 using 4 Beads art. 5328 4 mm Hyacinth.

Step 5: Repeat step 4 using 3 Beads art. 5328 4 mm Hyacinth.

Step 6: Repeat step 5 using 2 Beads art. 5328 4 mm White Alabaster.

Step 7: Repeat step 6 using one Bead art. 5328 4 mm White Alabaster.

(You can exchange Tangerine for Hyacinth if preferred or Light Topaz for Sunflower)

Swarovski Innovations and Inspiration 

Spring/Summer 2018 Themes

Gang Star.  A street-style revolution is erupting. Gritty, sports-influenced uniforms inspired by 90s hip-hop and “gangsta” rap are a new uniform for expressive belonging.

No Normal.  A new value revolution has commenced as an era of individuality and acceptance is ushered in. This season we shift our focus to the pure expression of clothes instead of fashion. Question everything.

Hacked Nature.  Technology is as pervasive as the air we breathe. Blending and merging, nature and technology unite to form bold new impressions out of seemingly polar opposites.

Spellbound.  Rediscover the interplay of light and dark. With trust in a declining future, we look to the past to show the way forward. Embracing the ethereal and surreal, we explore innovation in forgotten ideas.

“This need to connect, to create, to make ourselves heard, to give ourselves a voice, to right the wrongs and repair the injustices is front and center. Increasingly we seek freedom – of expression and physical boundaries. Fearful of the future, but dedicated to making the world a better place, the desire to bring some light and color into our world and offer hope for a brighter, more diverse and accepting future is of more importance than ever before.”

“We dedicate our Spring/Summer 2018 seasons to this emerging sentiment -eradicating the boundaries between luxury and street, the natural and the digital, male and female, as well as exploring the transcendence between opposing belief systems.

Welcome to an age of “New Perspectives”.
