Mediterranean Tangerine Earrings

PROJECT E2405
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
A citrus splash of Preciosa crystals wrapped around the long earring hook give an extra embellishment to these worldly earrings.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by watching our video: How to Wire Wrap Beads onto an Earring Hook. From what you learned in the video, wrap five beads on to the earring hook working your way towards the top. Once your hook is complete, set it aside.
  2. Then string one bead onto one head pin. Make a simple wire loop and then open this loop, same as you would a jump ring and attach it to one of the bottom holes of the pendant finding. Repeat this step to add four more beads to the bottom.
  3. Finally, open the loop of the earring hook, same as you would a jump ring, and attach it to the top of the pendant. Note: You may need to pry open the pendant a tiny bit to accommodate the hook.
