Retired - Candy Agate Earrings

PROJECT E7017
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
Bright, candy-colored drops of agate make these earrings pop, culminating in gorgeous, faceted briolettes. Delicate and chic!
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Cut a 1 1/2 inch length of agate gemstone chain, beginning with one of the large rings and ending with the single gemstone connector after the next ring. Be sure to keep the loops on each end of the piece intact. Set aside.
  2. Next, watch our video on how to wire wrap a briolette. Cut a 4 inch length of wire and begin to wire wrap one green agate briolette. When you make the loop at the top of the briolette, loop it onto the last link of your length of gemstone chain before completing the loop. See photo for reference.
  3. Open the loop of one earring hook, the same way you would open a jump ring. Slide on the top ring of the piece of gemstone chain, then close the loop.
  4. Enjoy your earrings!
