Drops of Blood Earrings

PROJECT E192
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
Icky title for a pair of earrings that are anything but! They can be worn to accompany our 'Marie Antoinette's Necklace', but these Austrian crystal drops are lovely enough to wear with anything. Now updated with PRESTIGE crystals.
Instructions

Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

  1. Remember to double all of the instructions in order to make both earrings. Thread an Austrian crystal drop bead onto a headpin. Create a simple wire loop and trim off excess wire.
  2. Thread a 6mm Austrian crystal round onto an eyepin, make a simple loop, and trim off excess wire. Repeat this step using a 4mm Austrian crystal round, and again using a 3mm Austrian crystal round.
  3. Open the loop at the top of the Austrian crystal drop bead the same way you would open a jump ring. Thread this loop through the loop at one end of the 6mm Austrian crystal round before closing it once more.
  4. Open the loop at the other end of the 6mm Austrian crystal round. Thread this loop through the loop at one end of the 4mm Austrian crystal round before closing it once more.
  5. Open the loop at the other end of the 4mm Austrian crystal round. Thread this loop through the loop at one end of the 3mm Austrian crystal round before closing it once more.
  6. Open the loop at the other end of the 3mm Austrian crystal round. Thread this loop through the loop at the bottom of the earring hook before closing it once more.
