Gilded Ruby Drop Earrings

PROJECT E3062
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Add a pop of red to your look this holiday season by wearing these vintage-inspired earrings featuring a pretty ruby bead nestled in delicate gold plated filigree.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Slide a red ruby glass tear drop bead onto a gold plated head pin and create a wrapped wire loop with your round nose pliers. Snip off any excess wire with your flush cutters.
  2. Next, with your chain nose pliers, open the loop at the bottom of your gold plated earring hook (how you would a jump ring) and slide it onto your wrapped wire loop and close.
  3. That's it!
