Retired - Antiqued Clover Earrings

PROJECT E7020
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
Complemented by antiqued brass findings, these turquoise magnesite clover beads appear weathered with age -- like a treasure found in an old jewelry box.
Instructions
Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for up-to-date information.
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Cut a 1 inch length of leaf charm chain.
  2. Open the loop of an eye pin the same way you would open a jump ring and slide on the top link of the length of leaf charm chain. Close the loop.
  3. Slide the eye pin through one hole of one magnesite clover bead. Then string three round brass beads onto the eye pin (it will be snug, but they will fit inside the clover bead). Then exit the top hole of the clover bead with the eye pin.
  4. Make a simple wire loop and clip off the excess wire with flush cutters.
  5. Open the loop of one earring hook and slide on the wire loop of the eye pin from the previous step. Close the loop.
  6. Enjoy your earrings!
