Half Moon Bay Earrings

PROJECT E8056
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Beginner
Tassels and texture combine in these flattering statement earrings using hammered stamping blanks and Swarovski Crystal beads. This light-weight design nicely frames the face, and is easily assembled using open jump rings and simple wire loops.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by using pliers to open a 4mm jump ring and slide on one hole of your half moon stamping blank. Also slide on the loop of your tassel. Close the jump ring.
  2. Use flush cutters to cut 1.5 inches of 22 gauge wire and make a simple wire loop. Slide on the other hole of your stamping blank. Close the loop.
  3. Onto the wire, slide on one 5mm Swarovski Crystal round bead. Above the bead, make another simple wire loop and slide on your earring hook. Close the loop. All done!
