Olympia Earrings

PROJECT E8053
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
These Greek style statement earrings feature Zola Elements pearl white acetate coins and triangles with brass stamping blanks. This design uses the BeadSmith 2-Hole metal punch to make holes in the square stamping blanks. The earrings are then quickly assembled with 5mm open jump rings.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring. You may want to use a marking pen and ruler to complete this project.
  1. Begin by watching the video: How to Use the BeadSmith Two-Hole Metal Punch. Using what you have learned in the video, make one 1.5mm hole on either side of your open square stamping blank (see photo for reference). You can use a marking pen and ruler to measure the spacing of your holes.
  2. To assemble your earring: Use pliers to open a 5mm jump ring and slide on one hole of your acetate coin. Also slide on one hole of your square stamping blank. Close the jump ring.
  3. Open another jump ring and slide on the hole of your acetate triangle. Also slide on the second hole of your stamping blank. Close the jump ring.
  4. To attach your earring hook: Begin by changing the orientation of your earring hook so that the loop faces forward. Open a jump ring and slide on the second hole of your acetate coin. Also slide on the loop of your earring hook. Close the jump ring. Enjoy!
