Sintra Earrings in Gold

PROJECT E889
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Wonderful resort colors of coral and turquoise take center stage in these elegant earrings. The design can easily be adapted to make the earrings longer or shorter.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. To make these earrings you will first want to watch the video: How to Finish Zola Elements Chain and Make a Bracelet. This video will show you how to cut the chain used in these earrings so that you expose the links which you can then attach a jump ring to.
  2. From what you learned in the video, cut your Zola chain so that you have 5 intact bars with beads on them and then each end has exposed chain links.
  3. Open a jump ring and attach it to the chain links on one end of your chain and also your earring hook. Close the jump ring.
  4. On the other end of you chain, attach another jump ring. Close the jump ring. Open yet another jump ring and link it to the jump ring you just attached as well as the Nunn Design bezel charm. Make sure the charm is facing forward and then close the jump ring.
  5. Apply a small amount of E6000 glue into the bezel and then set your Swarovski crystal down into the glue. Let dry for 24 hours before wearing.
  6. Enjoy!
