Retired - Fishbone Spike Earrings

PROJECT E7003
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
Fishbone chain makes an edgy statement in these striking earrings, punctuated by Czech glass spike beads.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Using flush cutters, cut a 1 1/2-inch piece of fishbone chain.
  2. Watch our video on how to wire wrap a briolette.
  3. Based on the technique shown in the video, cut a 3-inch piece of craft wire. String one Czech glass spike and wire wrap the bead, threading your wrapped wire loop through the bottom link of the fishbone chain. Trim off the excess wire with flush cutters.
  4. Open a jump ring. Slide it through the topmost link of your fishbone chain, then also slide it through the hole of your earring finding and close the jump ring. Enjoy!
