Retired - The Betty Earrings

PROJECT E759
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
These very 'girly' earrings are as fun to wear as they are to make. The sweet bow dangling from a pretty pearl makes for a whimsical design.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by snipping the head off an antique copper head pin. Create a simple wire loop where the head was, thus creating an eye pin. Place onto this eye pin 1 bead cap facing upwards, 1 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 14mm faux pearl in rose peach, and another bead cap facing downwards. Create a simple wire loop after the bead cap.
  2. Cut a length of chain 7 links long. Open one of the simple wire loops from the step above (the same way you would open a jump ring) and slip the end chain link onto this loop. Close the loop back up.
  3. On the other end of your chain open and link a jump ring. Before closing the jump ring also link onto it the loop at the top of your bow charm. Close the jump ring.
  4. At the top of your earring open the simple wire loop and link onto this the loop at the base of your earring hook. Close the loop.
  5. Enjoy!
