Retired - Good Earth Necklace and Earring Set

PROJECT S100
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
This down to earth jewelry set was made using warm antiqued copper fancy chain, accented with some truly lovely Czech glass beads in earth tones.
Instructions
  1. Begin by removing (cutting off) two of the large twisted oval links from your two foot length of chain. Leave two of the smaller links attached to each large link. Set these aside to use later when making your earrings.
  2. What should be left of your chain is seven large twisted oval links, with a chain of smaller links between and each and at either end.
  3. Create six head pin dangles by threading first a 2mm antiqued copper bead and then a green Picasso luster Czech fire polish bead. Make the beginnings of a wrapped wire loop and set them aside.
  4. Create three more head pin dangles by threading first a 2mm antiqued copper bead and then a 9mm beige Picasso fluted cathedral bead. Make the beginnings of a wrapped wire loop and set them aside.
  5. Add three of these dangles; two of the green Picasso fire polish with one beige fluted cathedral bead between them, to each of the three central large twisted oval links, as pictured.
  6. Finish the wrapped wire loop on each head pin dangle and trim off excess wire.
  7. Add an antiqued copper jump ring to each end of your necklace. Before closing one of these jump rings, thread it through the swivel loop on your clasp.
  8. To make the matching earrings, create two head pin dangles by threading on a 2mm antiqued copper bead, a 9mm beige Picasso fluted cathedral bead, and a green Picasso luster Czech fire polish bead. make the beginning of a wrapped wire loop on each, thread them onto their respective large twisted oval link, and finish wrapping the wire, trimming off excess when done.
  9. Open the loop at the bottom of each earring hook the same way you would open a jump ring. Thread the loop through its respective link at the top of the chain segment before closing once more.
