Retired - Very Metal Earrings

PROJECT E167
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Intermediate
Tailor made to compliment our 'Very Metal' bracelet, these wire-wrapped beauties mix metals in a very cool way.
Instructions
  1. Remember to double all of the instructions to make both earrings. Cut a length of wire about two feet long. Beginning at the narrow end of the oval Quick Link, wrap the wire around the link three times tightly, tucking the very end of the wire under the consecutive wraps.
  2. Add a bead and pull it tight onto the top of the link, directly next to the previous wraps.
  3. Wrap the wire around three more times, tightly. Add another bead, and wrap three times. Repeat this process all the way around the link until you get back to the beginning. Wrap the wire tightly around the end and trim off excess.
  4. Open three 10mm jump rings, two gold with one silver in the middle, and thread them through the Quick Link. Close the jump rings again.
  5. Open three 5mm jump rings, two silver with one gold in the middle. Use these jump rings to connect the three 10mm jump rings to the loop on your earring hook. Close the jump rings again.
