Summer Sea Glass Earrings

PROJECT E2328
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
A nautical color palette suits these sea glass and Swarovski crystal earrings perfectly in this casual but stylish design.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. String one sea glass teardrop bead on to one headpin. Make a simple wire loop. Set this aside.
  2. Next take one headpin and turn it into an eye pin as seen in our video: Quick Tip: How to Convert a Headpin into an Eye Pin.
  3. On to the eye pin, string one bicone, one wood bead and one bicone. Make a simple wire loop.
  4. Finally, assemble the earring by opening the bottom loop of eye pin with the wood bead on it, same as you would a jump ring, and attach it to the sea glass pendant. Open the top loop of the eye pin and attach it to the earring post in the same manner.
