Allison Earrings

PROJECT E2075
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
These sweet earrings feature Czech Glass beads in Dark Amethyst to contrast the gold color brought out on the natural brass bead caps by using a Vintaj Relief Block; a great tool you'll want to use again and again.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by taking your Vintaj relief block and brushing it across the top and sides of three bead caps to bring out the gold leaves in the design. Also, take the block to the top side of the 2 hole connector bead.
  2. Take one head pin and string on one glass bead and one bead cap. Make a simple wire loop.
  3. Attach this loop to one loop of the connector bead, by opening and closing it, same as you would a jump ring.
  4. Take one eye pin and string on one bead cap, one glass bead, and one bead cap. Make a simple wire loop.
  5. Attach one loop to the loop of the connector bead and attach the other loop the the loop of the ear wire.
  6. All done!
