Retired - Marissa Earrings

PROJECT E1064
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
Pretty swirled glass cabochons and beads give these earrings a soft and interesting look.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Use a pair of chain nose pliers to bend the top scallop on an antique silver plated oval bezel cup out until it sits flat, angling straight up.
  2. Place a dab of E6000 glue on the back of a light amethyst striped glass cabochon and press it into place in the bezel cup. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly before continuing.
  3. Place a Czech glass light pink and blue bead onto a silver plated 2", 21 gauge eye pin and create a simple wire loop after the bead. Use pliers to bend the top and bottom loops perpendicular to each other.
  4. Open one of the loops on the bead and hang the bezel cup by the bent scallop. Close the loop.
  5. Open the loop on an antique silver plated bali style teardrop earring hook and hang the bead by the free loop. Close the loop.
