Retired - Spring Flirt

PROJECT E602
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
The snow has melted and spring has arrived, celebrate with these cheerful and flirty sterling silver beaded earrings that will sparkle in the sun's rays.
Instructions
  1. Remember to double all the directions so as to make your matching pair of earrings.
  2. Begin by threading onto a 2" sterling silver ball head pin a 3mm round crystal Swarovski bead, a czech pressed glass rondelle spacer in olivine green, a 6mm rondelle Swarovski bead in greige, another olivine rondelle spacer, and another 3mm round crystal bead. Using your round nose pliers, create a wrapped wire loop at the end and cut off excess wire using your flush cutters. Make 2 of these.
  3. Thread onto a 2" sterling silver head pin a 4 mm bicone Swarovski bead in light amethyst and a 6mm rondelle Swarovski bead in greige. Create a wrapped wire loop. Make 2 of these.
  4. Thread onto a 2" sterling silver head pin a 4 mm bicone Swarovski bead in light amethyst and a 6mm rondelle Swarovski bead in greige, and a 3mm round crystal Swarovski bead. Create a wrapped wire loop.
  5. Next, wire wrap your 7mm x 28mm cubic zirconia briolette in light olivine green so that you have a wrapped wire loop at the top and then the end of your head pin that has the ball on it is wrapped around the upper body of the bead. It's ok to be loose and free-form with this portion of the wrapping, you want it to be a little abstract and not perfect, it will give the earrings an artistic flare. Repeat this same technique with 2 of your smaller flat briolettes in olivine green.
  6. Open up one 8mm sterling silver jump ring and slide all your above jewelry elements onto it through their loops at the top. You can put the elements onto the jump ring in any order you choose.
  7. Take one of your long elegant sterling silver ear wires and slide one end of the jump ring through the bottom hole of the ear wire. Close the jump ring.
  8. Have a wonderful spring!
