Retired - By The Sea Earrings

PROJECT E3027
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Featuring the classic nautical colors of Royal Blue, Coral and Gold, these sea glass and glass bead earrings are reminiscent of a refreshing day by the sea.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Onto your gold plated head pin, place a Royal Blue cultured sea glass teardrop bead, a gold plated spacer bead and a coral Czech fire polish bead.
  2. Next, create a simple wire loop with your round nose pliers.
  3. Snip off any excess wire with your flush cutters.
  4. Open the loop on your earring hook (how you would a jump ring) and slide on your simple wire loop. Close your earring hook back up.
  5. You're done!
