Retired - Grapevine Earrings

PROJECT E104
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
This clever design utilizes one filigree stamping for both earrings! The Swarovski amethyst crystal drop hangs like a sweet, juicy grape from deco-inspired brass vines.
Instructions
Using a pair of sharp cutter pliers (we recommend using the Xuron sharp flush cutter pliers) snip the filigree stamping in half. File down the edges if they feel sharp (to do this, you can use the set of 12 needle files)To the smaller end of the filigree stamping add two jump rings, one on each small decorative loop. Add a third jump ring to join the two. To the top jump ring, add an ear wire.To the two large decorative loops at the bottom of the filigree stamping, add a jump ring to each, joining the two jump rings with a third single jump ring.On a headpin thread an amethyst drop, wide part down.Create a simple loop at the end of the headpin and trim off excess wire.Add the loop to the bottom jump ring on the filigree stamping.Repeat to create second earring.Keywords:earrings, SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, brass, btq-vintagelook, bp-vintajTip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.All designs © Beadaholique Inc.
