Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Long and elegant these striking lantern earrings evoke an exhilarating world traveler feeling with their siam red and bright gold color palette.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Take one eye pin and string on one 2mm bead. Make a simple wire loop. Set aside. Repeat this step 35 more times for a total of 36 pieces.
  2. Open one simple wire loop, same as you would a jump ring, and attach it to one open loop at the bottom skirt of the bead cap. Close the loop. Work your way around the bead cap adding one dangle to each open loop around the skirt of the bead cap. Repeat this for three total bead caps.
  3. Take one head pin and string on one 4mm bead, one 6mm bead, one bead cap (open side facing down), and one 4mm bead. Make a simple wire loop.
  4. Open the loop and attach one eye pin. Close the loop. On to this eye pin string on one 4mm bead, one 6mm bead, one bead cap (open side facing down), and one 4mm bead. Make a simple wire loop. Repeat this step once more to add the third bead cap segment.
  5. Open the loop of the earring hook and attach it to the top simple wire loop you just made. Close the loop. All done!
