Opal Paradise Earrings

PROJECT E2269
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Beautifully soft Swarovski Crystals in Rose Water Opal and Pacific Opal glisten as the light catches them in their golden hammered bezel TierraCast frames.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring. You will also need a scrap of wire or a toothpick for this project.
  1. Begin by adding a dab of E6000 to the well of the bezel pendant, place the pacific opal cushion stone into the bezel. Add a dab of E6000 to the well of the bezel link, place the rose water opal cushion stone into the bezel. Set these aside to dry.
  2. Take one eye pin and string on one bicone bead, one tube bead, and one bicone bead. Make a simple wire loop.
  3. Open the bottom loop, same as you would a jump ring, and attach it to the loop of the bezel pendant. Close the loop.
  4. Open the top loop and attach it to one of the loops of the bezel link. Close the loop.
  5. Take one earring hook and open the loop, attach it to the top loop of the bezel link. Close the loop.
We recommend waiting at least 24 hours before wearing to allow the glue to fully set.
