Retired - Celine Earrings

PROJECT E3082
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
Ornate and glamorous, these wire-wrapped Lapis blue jade and gold earrings are a lovely addition to your vintage-inspired jewelry collection.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by cutting three 10" lengths of gold plated Artistic Wire with your flush cutters. (You can use longer lengths of wire for a messier wire wrap).
  2. Next, watch our video on How to Wire Wrap a Briolette.
  3. Following what you learned in the video, slide a wire length through one lapis blue drop and using your round nose pliers, create a messy wrapped wire loop.
  4. Repeat this step and create two more wrapped wire loops onto 2 more briolette beads.
  5. Using your chain nose pliers, open a gold plated jump ring and slide it through the loop on one of your wrapped wire briolettes. Before closing, also slide it through the small loop on the right side of your 22k gold plated ornate connector link. Close the jump ring. See photo for placement assistance.
  6. Repeat this step 2 more times and attach your other two wrapped wire briolettes onto your connector link. See photo for exact placement.
  7. Open the loop on your earring hook (how you would a jump ring) and slide it onto the loop at the top of your connector link and close.
  8. You're done!
