Retired - Beaux Arts Earrings

PROJECT E155
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
These lovely fire-polish and cathedral bead earrings can either be worn with a dress, or with your everyday clothes.
Instructions
  1. Remember to double all of the instructions to make both earrings. Make the following links by threading a bead onto an eyepin and creating a simple loop at the other end: One with a 4mm round hematite, two with an 8mm round jet black, and one with a 10mm cathedral bead.
  2. Open the loop at one end of the hematite link using the same method you would use to open a jump ring and thread it through the loop at the bottom of the earring hook. Close the loop again.
  3. Using this same method of linking, join the beads in the following order:
  4. hematite (connected to earring hook)
  5. 8mm jet black
  6. 10mm cathedral
  7. 8mm jet black
  8. Thread a 4mm hematite onto a headpin and make a simple loop. Trim off excess wire.
  9. Open the loop and thread it through the last loop of your bead chain. Close the loop again.
