These Crystal Rainbow DIY Earrings are elegant without sacrificing playful color and pattern. The muted rainbow beads and aquamarine triangles of the outer hoop create a scheme reminiscent of art deco design while the inner silver teardrop encloses a Swarovski crystal pendant on each earring for a modern and updated look. The combination of colored geometric shapes and light-scattering accents make this pair of DIY earrings a dreamy must-try project, and these pretties can be worn casually or formally. Make your own pair with this step-by-step tutorial.

5. Trim the excess beading wire flush against the crimp tubes.

6. Attach an ear wire to the same top loop of the teardrop frame.

I have been making jewelry for years and I love Czech Mate beads. They are quality beads.mconsistant sizes, colors and shape. I really don't have to worry about anything when using them. Plus the creations and patterns from Prima are absolutely gorgeous and so well written. The illustrations are very easy to follow.
