Retired - Faith, Joy, Love Earrings

PROJECT E7013
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
Radiate positive messages this holiday season with these expressive earrings featuring pewter message beads and malachite gemstone chips.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Using your flush cutters, cut two lengths of chain: one half inch, and one inch.
  2. Take one head pin and string the "faith" message bead. Then string two malachite chips. Make a simple wire loop and snip off the excess wire with flush cutters. Set aside.
  3. Repeat step 2 twice more, with the "joy" message bead and the "love" message bead. You will have three message beads strung on head pins with gemstone chips.
  4. Open the simple wire loop at the top of the "joy" message bead component the same way you would open a jump ring, and slide on the end link of the half inch piece of chain. Close the loop.
  5. Open the simple wire loop at the top of the "love" message bead component, and slide on the end link of the one inch piece of chain. Close the loop.
  6. Open the loop of an earring hook and slide on the loop of the "faith" bead component, followed by the last link of chain attached to the "joy" bead component, followed by the last link of chain attached to the "love" bead component. Close the loop.
  7. All done!
