Blue Sky Delight Earrings

PROJECT E2423
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
These wire wrapped earrings make a big statement with a ray of blue Preciosa Crystal Nacre Pearls.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by cutting off about 18 inches of wire. This is more than you will need but it helps to grip the wire as you wrap it.
  2. Begin your wrap at the top of the hammered frame with two wraps going around the loop. Leave a tail of about two inches to help you grip the wire. Please see photo for reference. Then add one pearl, adjusting it to sit on the outside of the frame. Wrap the wire twice and add another pearl. Continue in this manner until you have added 12 pearls, then complete the wrap with two wraps at the top of the frame.
  3. Trim the wire from the starting point and the ending point. You can use your chain nose pliers to tuck any wire that may be sticking out.
  4. Finally open one jump ring and attach it to the earring post and to the hoop. Close the jump ring. Attach the earring back and you're all done.
