Retired - Autumn Afternoon Earrings

PROJECT E703
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
The colors used in this earrings set remind me of an autumn afternoon where the sun peeking out from behind some clouds, casting a rosy hue over the scenery. These earrings could definitely be worn for a formal occasion or wedding, but they also would be perfect for a festive night out.
Instructions
Don't forget to double these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  1. Please watch the video: How to Make an Earring with a Beadable Earring Finding with Loops.
  2. Cut 2 feet of white Wildfire thread and place a needle on one end. Next, from what you learned in the video above, tie your thread end to one of the earring finding's loops. Bead your earring finding using 16 size 11/0 Toho seed beads in copper lined crystal and then tie off your thread.
  3. Place onto I head pin: 1 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 6mm bicone in colorado topaz, 1 size 11/0 Toho seed beads in copper lined crystal, 1 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 12mm chessboard bead in golden shadow, another Toho bead, and another bicone. Use wire looping pliers after the last bead to create a simple wire loop. Snip off excess wire with flush cutters.
  4. Open the loop that you just created and connect it to the bottom loop of your earring finding. Close the loop.
  5. All done! Enjoy!
