Retired - The Disco Earrings

PROJECT E111
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
No dancing outfit would be complete without our Disco Necklace and its perfect mate: this spectacular pair of earrings.
Instructions
Remember to double everything the instructions call for to make both earrings! Begin by threading the following on to a head pin: a fire polish beadan 8mm sparkle beadanother fire polish beada tube beadanother fire polish bead. Create a simple loop and trim off excess.Thread the following on to two more headpins: a fire polish beada sparkle crimp bead covera tube beadanother fire polish bead.Create a simple loop and trim off excess.Gently open the loop at the top of each headpin, add a closed jump ring to each, and close again.Thread a tube bead on to an eyepin and create a simple loop.Cut two pieces of chain that are about an inch and an eighth (3 large links) long.Add one end of each piece of chain to either loop on the eyepin.Gather both ends of the chain and add them both to a single jump ring, and add that jump ring to the loop on the earring hook.Cut about a foot of Artistic craft wire and insert roughly an eighth of an inch of the end of the wire into one end of the tube bead on the eyepin.Wrap the wire three times tightly and closely around the tube bead, thread the wire though the closed jump ring at the end of one of the shorter headpin dangles ensuring that it is wrapped tightly against the bottom of the horizontal tube. Continue wrapping the wire six times tightly around the tube, then add the long dangle the same way you added the first one.Continue wrapping the wire six times tightly around the tube, and add the final dangle the same way you added the first two.Finally, wrap the wire tightly around the tube three more times. Trim off excess wire, save for about a quarter inch, which you will insert into the end of the tube, or if that is not possible, wrap the excess tightly around the loop of the eyepin against the end of the tube.Make sure that the dangles are evenly spaced from each other, and have the same spacing on both earrings.Tip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.All designs © Beadaholique Inc.
