Moonlight Wedding Earrings

PROJECT E914
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
These lovely earrings sparkle brilliantly and feature Swarovski crystal fine rocks tube beads and coordinating bicones in crystal moonlight and crystal shimmer. Accenting the crystals are all sterling silver findings, giving an heirloom quality to this design.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin this earring by placing 1 bicone, 1 sterling silver rondelle, and 1 bicone onto a head pin. Create a wrapped wire loop after the last bead.
  2. Next, take a head pin and place onto it: 1 bicone, 1 sterling silver rondelle, 1 crystal fine rocks tube bead, another sterling silver rondelle, and finally one more bicone bead. Create a simple wire loop after the last bead.
  3. Open the simple wire loop you just made and link onto it the wrapped wire loop from the dangle you made in step 1. Close the simple wire loop back up (just like a jump ring).
  4. Open the simple wire loop on the other side and link onto it the loop at the base of the earring hook. Close the loop.
  5. All done, enjoy!
