Retired - Celebrate! Earrings

PROJECT E658
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Featuring gold, silver, crystal, and black, these earrings will go with absolutely everything! The crystal candy pave beads sway from delicate chains as you walk, sparkling brightly and definitely catching the eye.
Instructions
Remember to double these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  1. Begin by placing each of your beads onto a 1.5", 21 gauge silver plated head pin. Right after each bead, create a simple wire loop using your wire looping pliers. Cut off excess wire with flush cutters.
  2. Next, cut the following lengths of chain: 1", 1.25", and 1.5".
  3. Attach the 1" chain to the 8mm round pave clay bead in crystal via the simple wire loop and latch it onto the wider hole in the end chain link.
  4. Attach the 1.25" chain to the 10mm round pave clay bead in jet via the simple wire loop and latch it onto the wider hole in the end chain link.
  5. Attach the 1.5" chain to the 12mm round pave clay bead in light colorado topaz via the simple wire loop and latch it onto the wider hole in the end chain link.
  6. Open a silver plated 22 gauge 4mm jump ring. Place onto this jump ring the end chain links from all 3 of your dangles above. You will be latching it through the small little hole in each chain link and it will fit if you use a 22 gauge jump ring. Now also place onto it the loop at the base of your long elegant earring hook. Close the jump ring back up.
  7. Have a wonderful time wearing these earrings.
