Retired - Miranda Earrings

PROJECT E670
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Gorgeous gemstones in warm tones of red, orange, and champagne have been paired with rich gold colored findings in these classically elegant earrings. These look like they were purchased at a fine jewelry store and the stones are beautiful!
Instructions
Remember to double these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  1. Start by cutting the head off a head pin (as close to the head as you can). Using that now piece of "wire", wire wrap your Champagne Quartz briolette as shown is the video: How to Wire Wrap a Briolette.
  2. Take 1 22k gold plated ball head pin and place onto it 1 Red Orange Agate faceted round gemstone. Right after the gemstone, create a wrapped wire loop as seen in the video HERE Cut off excess wire with flush cutters. Repeat this step 14 more times.
  3. To assemble your earring, open a 4mm jump ring and place onto it the briolette you wrapped in the first step and 4 of the dangles from the second step. Close the jump ring.
  4. Open another jump ring and link it onto the previous one so that you have 2 of the small agate dangles on each side. Now place onto the jump ring 2 of the red orange dangles, the loop at the base of your gold filled earring hook, and two more red orange dangles. Close the jump ring.
  5. You have now attached 8 of the 15 red orange dangles which will go onto this earring. To attach the remaining 7, link them to the already connected dangles' wrapped wire loops via 3mm jump rings. Just open the jump ring, place a new dangle onto it, link it to the wrapped wire loop of a connected dangle, and then close the jump ring. Place them where ever it looks like you need some more color or weight. Do this for all 7.
  6. All done!
