Rustic yet refined, these floral chandelier earrings are adorned with glistening 10mm Swarovski Crystal pear pendants. This timeless design is sure to add beauty and bounty to any season.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. If you are new to wire wrapping, please watch the video: How to Wire Wrap a Briolette.
  2. Using what you have learned in the video, cut 3 inches of 26 gauge wire. Wire wrap one of your briolettes and connect it to one of the three loops at the base of your connector link. Repeat this step twice more to attach briolettes to the other two loops on the connector link.
  3. Open the bottom loop of your earring hook the same way you would open a jump ring and slide on the top loop of your connector link, making sure the link is facing forward. Close the loop. Enjoy your earring!
