Retired - English Rose Earrings

PROJECT E652
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
The highly detailed brass connector link which is used as focal point for these earrings is stunning when combined with lovely Swarovski crystals. The hammered flowers are as pretty on the front side as the back.
Instructions
Remember to double the instructions below to make your matched pair of earrings!
  1. Take one brass eye pin and place onto it 1 Swarovski crystal 5mm bicone bead in ruby. Create a simple wire loop right after the bicone. Cut off excess wire with flush cutters.
  2. Take another eye pin and create a simple wire loop right after the pre-made loop. Make this one about twice the size of the pre-made one. Cut off excess wire with flush cutters.
  3. Open the loop you just made in the previous step and slide onto it your Swarovski crystal pear shaped pendant in ruby. Close the loop back up. Now open the other loop (the one pre-made on the eye pin) and connect it to one of the loops on the brass connector link. Close the loop back up.
  4. On the other side of your brass connector link, attach the piece you made in the first step with the 5mm bicone via the simple wire loop.
  5. Finally, open the loop at the base of your brass earring hook and connect it to the simple loop at the other end of your 5mm bicone from the step above.
  6. All done!
