Retired - Daytona Beach Earrings

PROJECT E2010
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
These bright and cheerful sea glass earrings will have you saying, 'Let's go to the Beach!'
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring. Before you begin this project, watch our video: How to Make a Simple Wire Loop
  1. Place one bicone onto one head pin, make a simple wire loop. Repeat this step once more. Set aside.
  2. Now place one bicone onto one eye pin, make a simple wire loop. Repeat this step 5 more times. Set aside.
  3. Take the sea glass clamshell and put it onto a head pin with the large side of the shell at the pin. Make a simple wire loop. Set aside.
  4. Now that you have all of your simple wire loops, we will put them together. You will make one strand consisting of a bicone head pin and two bicone eye pins. To connect them, open and close the simple wire loops just like jump rings. Repeat this once more as a separate strand.
  5. Then take the clamshell loop and add two bicone eye pins on top of it.
  6. You should have three strands of links. Now taking the earring finding, thread the strands onto the earring hoop by their simple wire loops: 3 bicone strand, clamshell strand, 3 bicone strand.
  7. Taking your pliers you will bend up the end of the earring hoop that does not have a hole in it. Bend up only the last 3mm or so of the hoop so that your earring will hook together. You can see a video on how to do this HERE.
