Retired - Branching Out Earrings

Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
In these earrings, Czech glass lily petal beads in autumn jewel tones call to mind the last lingering leaves of the season. Beautifully wire wrapped, they dangle from an antiqued silver Nunn Design twig connector.

By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Before beginning this project, please watch our video on how to wire wrap a briolette.
  2. Following the technique shown in the video, cut a 3 inch piece of wire. Slide one rose-colored lily petal bead onto the wire. Wire wrap the lily petal bead, but before you wrap your top loop, attach it to the loop at one end of the twig connector. Then finish wrapping your wire, so the bead dangles from the end of the twig.
  3. Repeat step 2 with one tangerine and one sky-colored lily petal bead, so you have three wire wrapped beads dangling from one end of the twig. You can place the colors in any order you like.
  4. Use your pliers to open the loop at the bottom of an earring hook, the same way you would open a jump ring. Slide it through the loop at the other end of the twig connector, then close the earring hook loop. All finished!
