Retired - Vintage Vacation Earrings in Turquoise

PROJECT E3089
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
In a lovely resort-style color palette, these turquoise and coral earrings feature vintage Czech spun glass beads and Beadelle pave beads for a touch of classic glam.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by sliding a vintage Czech spun glass lace tear drop bead onto a gold plated head pin. Create a simple wire loop using your round nose pliers. Snip off any excess wire using your flush cutters.
  2. Next, take another gold plated head pin and snip off the head. Create a simple wire loop. Then slide on your Beadelle bead and create one more simple wire loop. Snip off any excess wire using your flush cutters.
  3. Open the simple loop on your vintage Czech glass lace tear drop bead (how you would a jump ring) and slide it onto the simple loop on one side of your Beadelle bead and close.
  4. Lastly, open the loop on your gold plated earring hook (again, how you would a jump ring) and slide it onto the second simple loop on your Beadelle bead and close.
  5. You're done!
