Kelly Earrings

PROJECT E7067
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
Lightweight and understated, these petite clover charm earrings are given a pop of color by a sprinkling of cheerful green Miyuki Delicas. Perfect for St. Patrick's Day!
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring. For extra inspiration on embellishing earring wires with seed beads, check out our video on how to add color to earring wires with seed beads.
  1. Take 1 kidney earring wire and string 1 crimp tube onto the open end. Slide the crimp tube down so it sits just above the nook where a charm would hang, as shown in this video. Crimp the crimp tube using the smaller notch of the double notch crimping pliers.
  2. String three Miyuki Delicas onto the earring wire so they sit just above the crimp tube.
  3. Using pliers, open and remove the jump ring that comes attached to 1 gold clover charm. Discard the jump ring. String the loop of the charm onto the hooked end of the earring wire so the charm faces forward.
  4. Enjoy your earrings!
