Ariel Earrings

PROJECT E2036
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
These beautiful opaque seafoam green pendants hang from a delicate wire wrapped chain of mystic purple rondelle beads. These cultured sea glass pieces are perfect for getting you in the mood for summer.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Cut off a strand of 4 wire wrapped rondelles from the chain which should be about 1 1/2 inches. Make sure that the end loops of your chain are in tact. Please refer to our video: How to Properly Cut Gemstone Chain. Set aside.
  2. Please watch our video: How to Wire Wrap a Briolette. You will follow the second example in the video for how to wrap the pendant and create your wrapped wire loop. (Note that a briolette stone is typically side drilled while these pendants are front drilled. It is the same technique, you will just want to make sure that when you make your top loop it is facing the front side of the pendant.) Before you complete your top wrapped wire loop attach one end of the wire wrapped rondelle chain to the wire. Once you have threaded on the chain, continue with the wrap of the wrapped wire loop. Cut off any excess wire.
  3. Onto the other end of the chain, attach the earring hook to the loop the same way you would a jump ring.
  4. All done! Remember when you make your second earring be sure that the pendant is facing the right way to make the set. (Refer to photo)
