The kit used Swarovski crystal beads, rhinestone roundel and silver-filled findings. Please note that these earring kits DO NOT have a step-by-step instructions! These earring kits are packaged in a 3″x4″ ziplock bags with all components needed and a 2″x3″ photo with it. Just follow the picture, stack up all beads/components, make a secured wrapped loop (or a simple loop if you do not know how to wrap wire) and then attach to the ear wire. Quick and easy.
