Anwell Earrings

PROJECT E8023
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
These Celtic-inspired earrings feature TierraCast heart charms framed by a wire woven ring, created using the Ring Weaver Tool by Beadalon. Dangling tassels of heart link and cable chain complete the look.
Instructions
The woven hoop of this earring is made using the designated size 6 configuration on the Ring Weaver Tool. The size is approximate and will be influenced by the size of your weaving material. By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Please watch the video: How to Use the Ring Weaver Tool by Beadalon. Follow along with the video to assemble your Ring Weaver Tool, placing your pegs in the holes designated for a size 6 ring.
  2. Use flush cutters to cut 35 inches of 24 gauge silver craft wire and load it onto the Ring Weaver Tool as shown in the video. Follow along with the video to create a 3 layer ring.
  3. To attach your heart charm, use pliers to open a 4mm jump ring and string on the loop of your charm. Also string on your woven ring by sliding the jump ring through the underside of one of your warps, so that the charm hangs in the center (see photo for reference).
  4. Prepare your chain dangles by using flush cutters to cut 10 lengths of cable chain and 5 lengths of heart link chain that are each 1.25 inches long.
  5. To attach your chain dangles, open a 4mm jump ring and string on the end links of 2 cable chains and 1 heart link chain. Also string on your woven ring by sliding the jump ring through the outer weave of the warp at the bottom of the hoop centered below your heart charm (see photo for reference).
  6. Repeat the above step 4 more times to attach chain dangles from the 2 adjacent warps on either side of the center dangle you just attached.
  7. To attach your earring hook, open the loop of your earring hook the same way you would open a jump ring. String the loop onto the outer portion of the same warp from which you attached the heart charm (see photo for reference). Enjoy your Earrings!
