Lustrous Loops Earrings

PROJECT E6102
Designer: Haley Brittain
Skill Level: Intermediate
These three tiered hoop earrings are a fun and simple way to add a splash of color to any outfit.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Start by cutting three lengths of wire about a foot each. Gather the ends of all three wires you just cut into one crimp cord end and crimp them together. Trim any ends of your wire that poked through the cord end.
  2. On your first wire, place beads on in this order: 20 wisteria, 1 turquoise, 2 wisteria, 2 turquoise, 1 wisteria, 20 turquoise, 1 pink, 2 turquoise, 2 pink, 1 turquoise, 20 pink.
  3. On your second wire, place beads on in this order: 25 wisteria, 1 turquoise, 2 wisteria, 2 turquoise, 1 wisteria, 25 turquoise, 1 pink, 2 turquoise, 2 pink, 1 turquoise, 25 pink.
  4. On your third and last wire, place beads on in this order: 30 wisteria, 1 turquoise, 2 wisteria, 2 turquoise, 1 wisteria, 30 turquoise, 1 pink, 2 turquoise, 2 pink, 1 turquoise, 30 pink.
  5. When you are done with all of your beads, put all three wires through a crimp cord end. Arrange your wires to create a three tier drop look and then crimp your cord end. Trim extra wire when completed.
  6. Open up a jump ring and put on the loops from both of the cord ends and the earring wire. Close the jump ring.
