Retired - Lavender Sky Earrings

PROJECT E742
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
The light amethyst and cyclamen opal color of the Austrian crystals in this earring set captures the feel of the season. I think of lavender flowers and the cool shades of sunset when looking at this design. What do you see?
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.

  1. Take a head pin and place onto it: 1 black finish 3mm hexagon rondelle bead, 1 Austrian crystal crystal 6mm rondelle in cyclamen opal, 1 antique silver plated twisted tube bead, another hexagon bead. Create a simple wire loop after the last bead. Cut off remaining wire with flush cutters. Make two of these.
  2. Cut the head off of one head pin. Create a simple wire loop which is large enough to act as a bail for your Austrian crystal crystal baroque pendant in light amethyst. See photo for scale. Once you have created that simple wire loop, open it the same way you would open a jump ring, thread it through your baroque pendant, and close the loop back up. Now thread onto the pin: 1 black finish 3mm hexagon rondelle bead, 1 Czech seed bead size 8/0 in silver lined black diamond, 1 Austrian crystal crystal 6mm rondelle in cyclamen opal, another seed bead, and another hexagon bead. Create a simple wire loop after the last bead and cut off excess wire with flush cutters.
  3. Onto one head pin place 1 Austrian crystal crystal 6mm rondelle in cyclamen opal. Create a simple wire loop after the bead and cut off excess wire with flush cutters.
  4. Orient your antique silver plated 4 ring drop chandelier earring part so that one loop is on top and 3 loops are sticking downward.
  5. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook and connect it to the top loop. Close the loop back up.
  6. Open the loop at the top of the single rondelle dangle and link it to the middle interior hoop of your drop chandelier earring part. Close the loop back up.
  7. For your two identical dangles, open each of their loops and attach them to the bottom side loops of your chandelier earring part. Close the loops back up.
  8. Finally, open the loop on the dangle with the baroque pendant and attach it to the bottom middle loop of your chandelier earring part. Close the loop back up.
  9. Please repeat the instructions above to make your second earring.
  10. Have fun wearing these earrings!
