Retired - A Midsummer's Night Dream Earrings

PROJECT E609
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Swarovski crystals in rich capri blue sparkle like the evening sky as lucite flowers in shades of purple cluster and swirl below in these enchanting earrings.
Instructions
  1. Remember to double all these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings!
  2. Take a 3 inch long head pin and thread onto it:
  3. 1 Swarovski 4mm bicone in capri blue
  4. 1 Antique brass diamond cut 4mm round bead
  5. 1 lucite 10mm calla lily in matte amethyst (petals facing down towards the head of the pin)
  6. 1 lucite 12mm calla lily in matte heliotrope purple
  7. 1 Vintaj 7.5mm ornate scroll bead cap
  8. 1 Swarovski 4mm bicone in capri blue
  9. 1 cultured coin pearl in heliotrope purple
  10. 1 Vintaj 16mm fancy filigree bead cap
  11. 1 Swarovski 4mm bicone in capri blue
  12. Once you have all your beads settled onto the head pin, create a wrapped wire loop above the last bead and cut off excess wire using flush cutters.
  13. Hold your beaded strand, and using your fingers, gently press and mold the Vintaj 16mm filigree bead cap around the cultured coin pearl. You want to flatten the front and back of the bead cap so that it is flush with the flat sides of your pearl. See photo.
  14. Take your fine french ear wire and open the loop at the bottom the same way you would open a jump ring. Connect to that open loop the beaded strand you made above, via the wrapped wire loop at top. Close the ear wire loop.
  15. Enjoy!
