Retired - Sunset Swirl Earrings

PROJECT E638
Designer: Lidia Ramos
Skill Level: Beginner
A pretty matte gold twist pendant is the focal point of these lovely dangle earrings. Accenting the gold swirls are sparkling Swarovski crystals.
Instructions
Remember to double all these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  1. Begin by opening up 1 matte gold jump ring. Link this jump ring to 1 Swarovski crystal baroque pendant in crystal golden shadow and the bottom hoop on your matte gold elegant twist pendant (the hoop that faces forward, not off to the side). Close the jump ring back up.
  2. Take 1 head pin and cut the head off of it, as close to the base as you can. Create a wrapped wire loop on one end of the head pin. Before you create your wraps, link the loop that you just made to the loop at the other end of your matte gold elegant twist pendant. Finish your wraps. Place onto the wire 1 6mm Swarovski round bead in crystal golden shadow. Create a wrapped wire loop right after the bead and cut off excess wire with flush cutters.
  3. Open the loop at the base of your french ear wire the same way you would open a jump ring. Link onto this loop the wrapped wire loop at the top of the beaded "dangle" segment that you have been creating in all the previous steps. Close the loop back up.
  4. All done!
