Retired - Kensington Earrings

Designer: Julie Bean

The warm rose pink chalcedony stone accents the ornate brass oval paisley connector beautifully in this pretty pair of earrings. These earrings would look lovely for a formal occasion but can also be worn more casually.
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.

Remember to double these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  1. Begin by cutting a 10" length of 24 gauge brass colored wire.
  2. Using this piece of wire, wire wrap a rose pink chalcedony briolette as seen in the video here. Keep neatly wrapping around the top of the briolette as seen in the photo. When you get to the point where you are happy with your wrappings, decide what is going to be the backside of your briolette and snip off the wire using flush cutters. Carefully press the wire end into the wrappings on the backside.
  3. Open a 5mm antique brass jump ring and link onto it the loop at the top of your briolette and one of the loops on your antique brass oval paisley connector link. Close the jump ring back up.
  4. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook and connect it to the loop on the other side of your antique brass oval paisley connector link. Close the loop back up.
  5. Enjoy your pretty new earrings!
