February 22, 20232 min read
For beginner jewellery makers who are looking for something simple that will yield a satisfying result, this is a great jewellery craft project to start with! Follow the simple instructions below to create these beautiful Drop Pendant Earrings with Swarovski Crystals. All the tools and components recommended in this guide are designed to do the work for you, so all you need to do is assemble the pieces. The completed crystal pendant bail is also perfectly suited for necklaces, meaning this activity could easily be expanded into a matching jewellery set.
The colour and shape of the Swarovski Crystals used for this project are also entirely customisable along with the type of metal plating. We encourage you to familiarise yourself with the tips and tricks in this guide and then explore our full range of Serinity crystal pendants and jewellery components, where you will find; silver plaited, gold plaited, rose gold plaited, sterling silver and more.

Use the Chain Nose Pliers to pull open the teeth of the Stirrup Bail,the easiest way to do this is to put the nose of the pliers inside the mouth of the bail and then push the pliers open with gentle controlled force, this will push the bail open from the inside.
Slot the Swarovski crystal pendant between the bails teeth so that the teeth will pass through the hole in the crystal and press the bail closed again with the pliers. The teeth of the bail should (almost) meet in the middle inside the crystal for a secure grip.
Using a twisting motion, open the loop at the bottom of the Shepherds Crook Ear Wire using the pliers, thread on the jump ring section of the pendant bail and twist the loop closed again. Avoid pulling the loop open as this weakens the metal and warps the curve of the loop.
Repeat all previous steps to complete the other earring and create a matching set.
