Retired - Lover's Embrace Earrings

PROJECT E175
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
We love these earrings with their soft, muted, warm color palette and the way they gently hang in a curve from the ear wires. They are a perfect match for our Lover's Embrace Necklace.
Instructions
  1. Remember to double all of the instructions to make both earrings. Cut a piece of beading wire at about three inches long, and fold it in half.
  2. Thread this piece of wire through a brass split ring, with the split ring resting right in the center crease of the wire.
  3. Onto both halves of the wire, thread a crimp bead and push it all the way up to the split ring. Crimp the bead, place a crimp bead cover over it, and gently squeeze closed.
  4. Thread the following onto both pieces of wire: a brass noodle tube bead, a 6mm round carnelian fire polish bead, an antiqued brass 4mm diamond cut out bead, a 3mm round orange aventurine bead, and a crimp bead.
  5. Crimp the crimp bead at the end. At this point you may add a tiny dab of glue, such as E6000, on the crimp bead to ensure none of your beads will slide off.
  6. Place a crimp bead cover over each of the crimp beads and gently squeeze them shut. Trim off excess wire.
  7. Onto an eyepin, thread an antiqued brass 4mm diamond cut out bead. Create a simple wire loop on the other end and trim off excess wire.
  8. Gently open the loop on both ends of the 4mm diamond cut out bead, the same way you would open a jump ring.
  9. Slide one of these loops through the loop at the bottom of the earring hook, and slide the other through the split ring. Close both loops again.
