Retired - Swarovski Crystal Sea Snail Earrings

PROJECT E2100
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Get ready to dance and twirl under the sea with these glittering Swarovski Crystal sea snail earrings.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring, repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Cut off a 6 inch piece of wire and use the nylon jaw pliers to straighten the wire.
  2. Using the wire looping pliers, make a wrapped wire loop at one end of the wire. Wrap twice and trim the wire.
  3. String on one pearl on to the wire and slide it all the up to the wrapped loop.
  4. Take the chain nose pliers and make a bend in the wire just below the pearl.
  5. Take the Wubbers Bail Making Pliers and wrap the wire three times around the 9mm side, creating a coil of wire.
  6. Once you have the three coils trim the wire. You will only need to leave a little extra to make a simple wire loop at the tail of the wire.
  7. Open one jump ring and attach it to the snail pendant and to the simple wire loop at the bottom of the coil. Close the jump ring.
  8. Open the loop of the earring hook, same as you would a jump ring and attach it to the top wrapped wire loop. Close the loop.
  9. All Done!
