Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
These sterling silver earrings feature an intricate sterling silver filigree bead simply hung from an elegant earring hook. This design illustrates how a stunning focal is sometimes all you need for a beautiful piece of jewelry.

Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Place one of your filigree beads onto a head pin. Create a wrapped wire loop after the bead and snip off excess wire with flush cutters.
  2. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook (the same way you would open a jump ring) and link this to the wrapped wire loop you just made. Close the loop.
  3. All done! Enjoy!
