Retired - Hammered Gold Cascade Earrings

PROJECT E001
Designer: Amanda Nistor
Skill Level: Beginner
Luxurious Gold-plated hammered rings in ascending sizes are embellished with lovely light blue Chalcedony drops for tasteful bling.
Instructions
Cut two 1 1/2" long pieces of the 26 gauge gold wire. Wrap two blue chalcedony teardrop beads, making a loop at the top of each. Ensure that each bead-and-wire piece is the same hanging length.Connect a 9mm hammered ring to a 13mm hammered ring using one of the oval jump rings. Connect a briolette drop and the 20mm hammered ring to the 13mm ring using a 7mm jump ring.Gently open the bottom of one of the earring hooks just enough to slip in the 9mm hammered link, then gently glose the earring hook bottom again.Repeat Steps 2 thru 4 to make a second earring and you are done!Design Tip: To keep the design from being too busy, I used a bead with a smooth surface to balance the highly visible texture of the rings.
