Crimson Om Earrings

PROJECT E2009
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Everyone will think you found these at a vintage street market in the East. They are a beautiful nod to the yoga culture with the antique brass and Siam red.
Instructions
By following these instructions you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by cutting your chain so that you have one un-cut piece that contain 6 scalloped bars. Remove the rings that are attached to both ends of the chain, but leave the others intact.
  2. Open a jump ring and attach 1 om pendant to it. Close the jump ring around one end of the scalloped bar chain. Put it right thru the hole at the end of the bar.
  3. Using a headpin, place a red bicone on to it and create a simple wire loop. Repeat this step two more times.
  4. Now taking the end of the chain with the om pendant on it, you are going to place your simple wire looped bicones onto the chain where the rings connect the bars. Do this in the same manner you would open and close a jump ring. Place one on the ring next to the pendant, and one more on the next ring above that.
  5. For the final bicone you will attach it to the other end of the chain. This one you will attach to the end of bar on the chain.
  6. The very center ring of the chain, you will open the ring and attach the earring finding to it. Close the ring.
  7. You will now have an earring with 3 bars dangling down on each side. One side has 2 bicones and the pendant, the other side has 1 bicone on the end of the chain. See photo for reference.
