Unforgettable Diamond Earrings
For some reason, one of the first things I figured out how to do with rhinestone chain maille was make it into three dimensional shapes. This stunning pair of diamond shaped earrings was one of my earliest designs with rhinestones. This season, I brought back the original pair of basic diamond shaped earrings in silver with aquamarine. Everyone seems to love that color combination so I wanted to make this classic kit available again.
In order to go just a bit further this season I added an additional level into the pattern to show how to add yet another smaller diamond. Additionally, I was in possession of some stunning Swarovski Crystals and figured it was a great time to share some of those with you. In this updated kit tutorial, I have added in a few more photos and instructions to add a new tier to the top of these earrings. This is ideal for those who like their earrings just a bit longer but it also shows you how to make a diamond shape with only a single rhinestone on the front and back.
As I bring these projects to you, it is my hope that you will be building on your repertoire of skills and be able to come up with some of your own unique designs from the components that I’ve provided to you. There are so many wonderful ways to mix these techniques together. I’m excited to see what you will come up with. All of these designs are available in kits that include the materials and instructions. Please let me know if you would like to see these in additional colors and combinations.
