Retired - Annalisa Earrings

PROJECT E3036
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Make these vintage-inspired long drop earrings by combining Czech glass beads in Olivine and Jet Black and unique brass dangle charms by Vintaj. The outcome is a sleek, yet ornate accessory.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by watching the video on How to Use the Vintaj Relief Block.
  2. Following what you learned in the video, use the side of your Vintaj relief block to sand the raised areas of your Vintaj stampings to show off the detail. Set the stampings aside for now.
  3. Open the loop at the bottom of your earring hook (how you would a jump ring) and slide on the top loop from your Vintaj chandelier drop charm. Close the loop back up.
  4. Next, open up a jump ring with your flat nose pliers and slide on the loop from one Vintaj long drop charm and also the bottom left loop of your Vintaj chandelier drop charm. Close the jump ring.
  5. Open another jump ring and repeat the above step with your second Vintaj long drop and the bottom right loop from your Vintaj chandelier drop charm. Close the jump ring.
  6. Next, take a 3� brass headpin and slide on the following: 1 Jet Black teardrop bead, 1 Olivine bicone bead, 1 Jet Black teardrop bead, 1 Olivine bicone bead, 1 Jet Black teardrop bead and 1 Olivine bicone bead.
  7. Once all the beads are on, create a simple wire loop with your round nose pliers. Snip off any excess wire with your flush cutters. (LINK)
  8. Open the simple wire loop (like you would a jump ring) and slide it onto the middle loop of your Vintaj chandelier drop charm and close.
  9. You're done.
