Smyks has acquired a new selection of mounted charms and connectors in glass. The glass is faceted, available in various beautiful colors and can be combined in a plethora of ways.

Here, we have shown some  suggestions which we hope will spark your inspirational side and give you some ideas for creating your own earrings.

Earrings with glass charms are quick and easily made, thereby making sure, that everyone can make their own designs, whomever they may be. For the most part, it is as easy as opening up some jumprings and hereafter putting together the various desired glass charms.

You will have to use 2x either chain-nose plier or flat-nose plier to open up, and close, the jumprings.
