We love these earrings for their innovative use of the TierraCast sliders. We don’t normally look at a slider and think that would make a great earring!, but we’re glad someone did! These earrings are eye-catching and flashy, and these crystals catch light and glimmer at almost every angle.
This tutorial is written for the Blue/Silver color way, but feel free to mix it up like we did with gold components and other colors of crystals.
