Earrings with bowknots and rhinestones

These earrings with acrylic rhinestones and metal bowknots are fully on trend and so easy to make.

These pearshaped rhinestones are light-weight (such a good thing for earrings), the silverfoiled back makes them sparkle, and they are available in a wide range of colours. Combined with the fun metal bowknots the combinations are endless.
What do you need to make these earrings
  • Flat nose pliers to close the prong settings
  • Round nose pliers to adjust the earwire
  • A pair of earwires, goldtone suits the brass settings well
  • Two prong settings with 1 loop for a pear rhinestone 18x13 mm
  • Two pear shaped rhinestones size 18x13 mm
  • Two metal bowknots

Additional tips for putting these earrings together
  • Take your time to get used to working with prong settings. Please refer to our article Making earrings with vintage rhinestones for a full description.
  • I've used earwires without a loophole. First you slide the bowknot on the wire, and then the finished setting. I squeezed the loop area slightly to prevent the pendants from sliding off too easily.
