Retired - Teal Artisan Drop Earrings

PROJECT E2001
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
This is a great piece if you want an elegant vintage drop earring by combining the SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS teardrop pearls and crystal beads with the Vintaj Pewter. The perfect mix of old and new.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Place your Tear Drop pearl (so the larger part of the pearl is down) on to the head pin and then add 3 bicone crystals on top.
  2. Create a simple wire loop. Open the simple wire loop that you just made (do this the same way you would open a jump ring. ) and attach the head pin (with beads) to one side of the Vintaj Artisan Pewter Dual Ring Connector Link. Close the simple wire loop.
  3. Attach the open eye pin to the other side of the Pewter piece by opening it like a jump ring. Add 1 bicone crystal bead.
  4. Create a simple wire loop.
  5. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook and attach it to the simple wire loop that you just made. Close the loop back up.
