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.

By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Place onto a head pin 1 Austrian crystal crystal faux pearl.
  2. Carefully slide the head pin into one of the holes in your thread ring, going from the inside of the ring to the outside.
  3. Create a wrapped wire loop on the outside of the ring. Snip off excess wire with flush cutters.
  4. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook (the same way you would a jump ring) and slide on the wrapped wire loop from the step above. Close the earring hook loop.
  5. This project is also demonstrated at the end of the Show & Tell video for the pave thread rings.
