TechniqueTwo-Part Epoxy Adhesive
Approximate Size2 1/2 Inches
I chose gold findings to go with the murky mint green color of the Swarovski Rivoli.
Refreshing splashes of mint color sparkle among luxurious gold components in these regal earrings. A Swarovski rivoli in Crystal Mint Green takes center stage, while Chrysolite Opal and Erinite bicones keep the fresh color palette going. The rivoli rhinestones in this design are part of the Swarovski Innovations for Spring/Summer 2018. See more from these Innovations here.
Use 5-minute two-part epoxy to add a Swarovski 12mm rivoli in Crystal Mint Green to a TierraCast gold 12mm twisted rivoli setting 1+3 link. Allow to dry.
Add a Swarovski 4mm XILION bicone in Chrysolite Opal to a gold-filled 020 1-inch eye pin and make a simple loop at the top of the bead. Attach this link to the center loop on the rivoli link using a 14K/20 gold-filled 3.0mm open jump ring.
Slide a Swarovski 6mm XILION bicone in Chrysolite Opal AB onto an eye pin and make a simple loop at the top of the bead. Attach this link to the bottom of the link you created in the previous step.
Cut two pieces of 1.7mm gold-plated brass delicate cable chain approximately 21 links long each. Connect the two pieces of chain to a jump ring. Connect this jump ring to the bottom loop of the 6mm bicone link. Attach the other ends of the chains to the corresponding outside loops on the rivoli link.
Slide a Swarovski 3mm XILION bicone in Erinite onto a gold-filled 1-inch 24 gauge head pin with ball end, followed by a 4mm Chrysolite Opal bicone. Make a simple loop at the top of the beads. Attach it to the jump ring at the end of your bicone dangles, between the two chain pieces.
Repeat steps one through five to create the other earring.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
