Skull and Filigree Earrings

PROJECT E3034
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
These faceted Jet black SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS skull beads pair beautifully with antiqued silver filigree. Pair them with a little black dress to add a touch of mysterious glamour to your look.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by sliding a Jet black SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS skull bead onto a gun metal eye pin.
  2. Next, create a simple wire loop with your round nose pliers. Snip off any excess wire with your flush cutters. You should now have an eye pin loop on both ends of your skull bead.
  3. Using your chain nose pliers, open the loop on your earring hook (how you would a jump ring) and slide on the simple wire loop that is on top of your skull bead. See photo for reference. Close the loop with your pliers.
  4. Next, open the eye pin loop that is beneath your skull bead (again, the way you would a jump ring) and slide on the loop that is on the top of your antiqued silver plated filigree stamping. Close with your pliers.
  5. You're done!
