DIY Earrings with Swarovski Cosmic Rings

I am absolutely in love with Swarovski’s cosmic crystal rings. There are so many things you can do with these! These cosmic rings sparkle everywhere you go. Here is one of my absolute favorite designs using cosmic crystal rings from Swarovski.

You don’t need much to make these beautiful earrings.

Supplies Needed

Follow the steps below

1

First you will need four pieces of wire, each approximately 4 inches in length. Take your first piece of wire and feed it through the center of your cosmic crystal. Wrap your wire around one side of the cosmic ring 2 times.

2

Then, use your flat-nose pliers to wrap the short end of your wire around the longer end 2-3 times. Clip off any extra wire on your short piece.

3

Hold the tip of your round-nose pliers just above your wrap, and create a loop with the remaining long piece of wire. Secure the loop by wrapping the wire down to the cosmic ring, over your previous wrap, and then back up to your loop.

4

Clip excess wire and tuck your end.

Follow the above steps to create 2 loops per cosmic ring.

Now, cut 24 one-and-a-half inch pieces of wire. Create a coil with your first piece of wire by wrapping one end of the wire around your round-nose pliers 2-3 times. TIP: If you don’t want to make coils, you can use ball-end head pins instead of wire for a simpler look.

Add one of your 4mm crystals and bend the coil so it is up against your crystal.

To finish off your earrings simply add a French hook!

Once you’ve added all your crystals, finish off your earrings by simply adding an earring hook to each one!

The end result is stunning. Using different 4mm crystals on the same cosmic ring makes each pair look slightly different.

Use colors that accent your cosmic rings. If you want to bring out a color in the ring, use tones that accent that color. If you want them longer, simply add more crystals!

Enjoy!

Always, Kayla
