Regal Earrings

PROJECT E8001
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Beginner
These stately earrings feature ornate gold plated filigree cones with rich accents of turquoise Czech crystal and pearlized glass.
Instructions
For similar design techniques, please watch the video: How to Make the Sepia Rose Earrings. By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by stringing one 4mm pearl bead and one 5mm bicone onto a headpin, and make a simple wire loop. Repeat this step three more times to make four beaded dangles. Set aside.
  2. Take one of your beaded dangles from the previous step and open the simple wire loop the same way that you would open a jump ring. Slide the loop onto one of the open loops of one bead cone. Close the loop. Repeat this step three more times until all four dangles are hanging from the bead cap. Set aside.
  3. Next, take a head pin and string on your bead cone facing down so that your dangles hang from the bottom. String a 6mm faceted pearl bead onto the headpin so that it rests at the top of the piece.
  4. Create a wrapped wire loop above the 6mm faceted pearl bead. Set aside.
  5. Prepare your unfinished ear wire by stringing one 5mm bicone onto the stem, and then make a simple wire loop underneath it, with the loop facing the same direction as the top curve of the earring hook (see photo for reference).
  6. Use pliers to open the bottom loop of your earring hook, and attach it to your completed earring as you would a jump ring. Enjoy your earrings!
