Retired - Beach Wedding Earrings

PROJECT E7052
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
Sea glass shells and crisp, white Swarovski crystal pearls join in a harmonious union, making these earrings perfect for a breezy beach wedding on the sand.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Take 1 head pin and string 1 Swarovski crystal pearl. Using pliers, make a simple wire loop and cut off the excess wire with flush cutters.
  2. Take 1 eye pin and open the loop the same way you would open a jump ring. Slide on the loop of the head pin with the pearl from the previous step. Close the loop of the eye pin.
  3. String 1 sea glass seashell bead onto the eye pin, with the broad end facing up, as shown in the photo. Make a simple wire loop at the top and cut off the excess wire with flush cutters.
  4. Open the back of one silver leverback earring finding. Slide the wire loop from the previous step onto the earring hook so it rests in the open loop at the bottom of the finding.
  5. Enjoy your earrings!
