Retired - Something Blue Earrings

PROJECT E217
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
The 'something blue' in this pair of earrings comes in the form of a subtle air blue opal Swarovski rhinestone, placed in the center of a lacy filigree stamping.
Instructions
  1. Remember to double all of the instructions in order to make both earrings! Onto a gold filled ball head pin, thread an 8mm Swarovski pearl and a 3mm Swarovski air blue opal bicone.
  2. Create the beginning of a wrapped wire loop on the headpin. Before you complete your wrapping, thread the loop onto the center hole at one end of the off white stamping. Finish wrapping and trim off excess wire.
  3. Open the loop on a gold filled earring hook, the same way you would open a jump ring.
  4. Thread the loop through the hole at the opposite end of your off white stamping. Close the loop once more.
  5. Spread a small amount of E6000 adhesive on the back of an air blue opal Swarovski flatback and press it onto the center of the off white stamping.
  6. Set the earrings aside to dry for at least five hours before wearing.
