Bright cerulean blue and intense mustard yellow look even more vibrant when accented with black finish metal components, as shown in these fun and fabulous earrings.
Instructions
Remember to double all of the instructions in order to make both earrings! Onto a headpin, thread a 4mm honey jade bead, a 12mm Vintaj arte metal fairy petal bead cap, and a blue candy jade barrel bead.Trim the headpin to about a half inch above the candy jade bead, and create a simple wire loop. Set this dangle aside.Onto the straight part of an unfinished ear wire, thread a 4mm honey jade bead. Create a simple wire loop.Open five oval jump rings. Thread two of the jump rings through the two central holes on one of the filigree petals, and thread two more jump rings through the holes directly opposite these. Close all four jump rings once more.Join two of the jump rings together with a third jump ring. Thread this third jump ring through the loop at the bottom of your earring hook. Close this jump ring again.Open the loop at the top of your candy jade dangle and thread it through the two jump rings at the bottom of the filigree. Close the loop again.Finally, spread a small amount of E6000 adhesive onto the back of a Swarovski pacific blue opal rhinestone using a toothpick or a scrap of wire, and press it firmly onto the center of the filigree stamping. Set aside to dry for at least five hours before wearing your new earrings.VariationsSee our Esmeralda Earrings for a variation on this style.
Tip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.
