Wedding Bells Earrings

PROJECT E611
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
I can hear the bells... frosted lucite lily of the valley flowers hang artfully from a delicate ear wire in these bridal collection earrings. Nestled with the flowers are filigree silver plated bead caps and sparkling
Instructions
  1. Remember to double all these directions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  2. Take a ball head pin and thread onto it:
  3. 1 Preciosa Czech crystal 4mm bicone
  4. 1 silver plated 3mm round bead
  5. 1 lucite lily of the valley bead cap (petals facing down)
  6. 1 silver plated open petal bead cap
  7. and 1 more silver plated 3mm round bead.
  8. Repeat with 4 other ball head pins.
  9. Create a simple wire loop at the very top of one of the above head pins' wire length. Now take another one of the above head pins and create a simple wire loop just above the last bead you threaded on. Take a 3rd head pin from above and 1/2 way down the length of the head pin, create a large wrapped wire loop (just form the loop further back on your round nose pliers so that the diameter of the loop is larger). For the remaining 2 heads pins, create simple wire loops at differing spots along the length (just one loop per head pin though). You want the head pins to be staggered in height when you link them all together.
  10. Take a new ball head pin and place onto it:
  11. 1 Preciosa Czech crystal 4mm bicone. Create a simple wire loop above the bead. Take another new ball head pin and thread onto it 1 Preciosa Czech crystal 4mm bicone, 1 silver plated open petal bead cap, and 1 more Preciosa Czech crystal 4mm bicone
  12. Create a simple wire loop above the last bead.
  13. Open the simple wire loops on the head pins you created above, the same way you would open a jump ring, and attach all of them except for the shortest flower one to the wrapped wire looped head pin you made two steps ago. Close all the attached loops back up as you attach them.
  14. Open the bottom loop of your earring hook. Attach onto it the head pin with the wrapped wire loop which now has other head pins attached to it and the shortest head pin with simple wire loop. Close the loop back up.
