Retired - The Impressionist Necklace, Earrings and Ring Set

PROJECT S1002
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Advanced
The impression jasper gemstone beads used in this set are incredibly pretty, with swirls of purple, aqua blue, and copper colors. They are perfectly accented with copper components and deep purple ribbon.
Instructions
Be sure to look through your strand of beads and choose your favorites to feature in your jewelry! The instructional video: How to Make a Wire Wrapped Gemstone Jewelry Set will walk you through the entire process of making these pieces. Watch it once through before you begin, and then follow along as you go.
To Make the Necklace:
  1. Use five 8mm impression jasper round beads, 18 gauge bare copper Artistic Wire, and 24 gauge bare copper Artistic Wire to create five necklace links as shown in the video. Connect them as shown using 5mm, 20 gauge genuine copper jump rings.
  2. Cut a piece of amethyst purple silk fabric flat ribbon in half. Attach each cut end to a jump ring as demonstrated in the video, and then use another jump ring to attach each end of your links to a ribbon.
To Make the Earrings:
  1. Use two jasper beads and the two sizes of copper wire to create two earring links, with wrapped wire loops, as shown in the video. Gently open the loop on a genuine copper fishhook earring hook and hang one of the earring links from it using the wrapped wire loop. Repeat with the second earring.
To Make the Ring:
  1. Use a jasper bead and the two sizes of copper wire to create a ring as demonstrated in the video.
