Retired - Jour de Pluie

PROJECT E2015
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Hoping for a cozy rainy day, but still want to look glamourous? Then these earrings are for you!
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. You will notice that the bead cap that we will be using for the top of the earring has 8 petals. From each petal you will be hanging a strand of crystals with simple wire loops.
  2. Take one head pin and place one 4mm bicone on it, make a simple wire loop.
  3. Then take one eye pin and place one 4mm bicone on it, make a simple wire loop. Attach the first head pin to this eye pin with the simple wire loop, the same way you would a jump ring.
  4. Make three more eye pins with 4mm bicones with simple wire loops and link them to the others, the same as above.
  5. For your final loop in the strand, attach it to one petal open loop of the bead cap.
  6. Repeat this process for all 8 petals on the bead cap: one head pin simple wire loop, followed by four eye pin simple wire loops. Attach to the bead cap.
  7. For the center strand, take one head pin and place one 6mm bicone on it, make a simple wire loop.
  8. Then take one eye pin and place one 6mm bicone on it, make a simple wire loop. Attach the first headpin to this eye pin with the simple wire loop, the same way you would a jump ring.
  9. Make two more eye pins with 6mm bicones with simple wire loops and link them to the others, the same as above.
  10. For the last simple wire loop, take one eye pin and attach it to that last simple wire loop of the center strand, and thread it up through the center hole of the bead cap. Place one 4mm bicone on the eye pin and make a simple wire loop.
  11. Finally, attach the earring hook, the same way you would a jump ring, to the simple wire loop.
