Retired - Lucky Ladybug Earrings

PROJECT E681
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Beautiful Golem pendants take center stage in this pretty pair of earrings. Each pendant portrays a butterfly in flight and a lovely petite white flower. Antique copper accents help to make the green tones in this design really 'pop'.
Instructions
Remember to double these directions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  1. Cut the head off of an antique copper head pin. Create a simple wire loop at the end that you cut the head off of.
  2. Measure and cut 3" of chain.
  3. Thread the chain through the hole in the Golem pendant. Pull the chain so that the pendant is in the middle and the chain is not twisted.
  4. Open the simple wire loop that you made in the first step and link onto it both ends of your chain from the previous steps. Close the loop.
  5. Place a Czech glass 5mm round melon bead onto the wire that is sticking up from the chains/pendant. Create a simple wire loop right after the bead. Trim off excess with flush cutters.
  6. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook. Link onto this loop the simple wire loop you made in the last step. Close the earring loop back up.
  7. All done! Enjoy your pretty new pair of earrings.
