PROJECT E3067
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Adorned with bright pops of ruby red, these gypsy-style earrings will dangle delightfully as you walk.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Using your chain nose pliers, open the loop at the bottom of your gold plated earring hook (how you would a jump ring) and slide on the loop that is at the top of your gold plated chandelier earring finding and close.
  2. Next, onto a gold plated ball head pin, slide on 1 simulated ruby glass bead and create a wrapped wire loop using your round nose pliers. Snip off any excess wire using your flush cutters.
  3. Repeat this step 5 more times.
  4. Then, using your chain nose pliers, open a 3mm gold plated jump ring and slide it through the wrapped wire loop from one of your bead dangles. Also slide the jump ring through a loop in the filigree on the left side of your earring finding. Refer to the photo for exact placement.
  5. Repeat adding bead dangles onto your earring finding via open jump rings and close.
  6. That's it!
