Retired - Partly Cloudy Earrings

PROJECT E2068
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
With a mix of pastel yellow and grey Swarovski pearls, these wire wrapped earrings are inspired by the sun peaking through the clouds on a beautiful spring day.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Using your flush cutters cut off about 20 inches of wire.
  2. Take one silver quick link and begin wire wrapping by going around four times with one end of the wire. Make sure that as you continue the wrapping that you are always going the same way.
  3. Onto the wire, string one yellow pearl. Continue wrapping four times.
  4. Onto the wire, string one grey pearl. Continue wrapping four times.
  5. Keep alternating until you have wrapped 5 yellow and 5 grey pearls.
  6. When you come to the end, wrap the wire around four more times to meet up with the beginning.
  7. Snip the excess wire.
  8. Cut off 1 1/2 inches of chain.
  9. Open one jump ring and attach it to the point on the wire wrapped loop that has eight wraps on it. Attach one end of the chain to this jump ring. Close the jump ring.
  10. Open one earring hook the same way you would a jump ring and attach it to the other end of the chain. Close the loop.
  11. All done.
