Rustic Love Earrings

PROJECT E8094
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Beginner
Antiqued copper mini hearts dangle from faceted nugget beads in these charming artisan style earrings. The design features mixed metal elements from the Nunn Design Winter 2020 Collection.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by using flush cutters to cut 5 inches of 22 gauge hematite craft wire.
  2. On one end of the wire, make a wrapped wire loop, sliding on one copper mini heart before coiling the loop closed. Double the thickness of your coil against the bead's oversized hole by using the technique shown in this video.
  3. Slide on one faceted rectangle bead, then make another wrapped wire loop with a double-thick coil the same way you did in step 2.
  4. Use pliers to attach an earring hook onto your wrapped wire loop from the previous step.
  5. Enjoy your earrings!
