Swarovski Crystals daisy chain beaded earrings on silver plated ear wires.

Welcome jewellery making business owners! If you're looking for inspiration for your next creative project and likely best seller, consider making daisy chain earrings using Swarovski Crystals and beads. Follow the easy step by step instructions below, to create your very own set of daisy chain earrings.


Who can buy Swarovski Crystals and beads?

Please be aware that Swarovski Crystals are only available to select brands and businesses, who accept that the purchase of Swarovski components does not allow them to use the Swarovski brand name to market their products. If you are willing to accept the brand restrictions and sign a Brand Control Agreement with Swarovski, you can apply via our website to become a Swarovski Approved Customer and we as a Swarovski Authorised Distribution Partner will then be able to supply you with Swarovski Crystals and components via our Bluestreak Crystals website.

We at Bluestreak Crystals are one of one of very few remaining worldwide Swarovski Authorised Distribution Partners which continue to sell the full range of Swarovski Crystals. Register online today and continue to buy Swarovski Crystals for your products or services. Alternatively, we would recommend using Serinity Crystals as the best replacement for Swarovski crystal components used in this rhinestone embellishment project.

Step 1

Thread the bead onto the headpin

The headpins are going to form the links of the daisy chain section of the earring, with the flat head preventing the beads from sliding off the bottom. Begin the chain by threading one 5028/4 bead onto a headpin.

Step 2

Secure the bead and create a loop

Use Chain Nose Pliers to bend the head pin at a right angle 5mm above the bead, this will stop the bead from sliding off the pin. Then use Round Nose Pliers to loop the headpin back on itself into a small circle and cut off the rest of the wire with Side Cutters, giving you a closed loop similar to a jump ring. This completes a single link in the beaded chain and at this point, this beaded element could be treated like a pendant or charm and be attached individually to earrings or onto a chain to become a necklace or charm bracelet.

Step 3

Create the next link in the chain

To create the next link, repeat step one and then thread the headpin through the loop of the previous link before using the Chain Nose and Round Nose Pliers to create the next loop after a 5mm gap, this will create the first true linked section of the earring.

Step 4

Repeat Step 3

To complete the daisy chain, repeat step 3 until you have a sequence of 6 beads all linked together. Care should be taken to ensure gap between the beads and the loops is the same on all of the links to guarantee an evenly distributed daisy chain. To achieve this, you can make a note on the chain nose pliers of where the headpin sits each time before you bend it. For our earrings we chose to hold the headpin 5mm in from the tip of the pliers every time we bent it.

Step 5

Attach the ear wire

Once you have a chain of 6 connect beads, use the round nose and chain nose pliers to gently twist open the loop at the bottom of the Fishhook Ear wire, then thread the last loop of the chain onto the opened loop. Be sure to always twist the loops open and closed and never pull them open as that will make the loop more likely to break in the future.

Step 6

Create a matching pair

Repeat steps 1 to 5 to create the second daisy chain earring and complete the set.
