Beth's Beach Earrings Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Beth originally made these to wear to Maggie's wedding, but loved them so much they became her summertime favorite! For the matching necklace, click here. For the bracelet, click here.

Step one: On a sterling silver eye pin, string a light orange nugget pearl followed by a 3mm Swarovski padparadscha faceted round crystal. Finish with a wrapped loop. For instructions on how to make a wrapped loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Attach the wrapped loop to the bottom of a peridot sterling silver earwire.

Step two: Attach a sterling silver open jump ring to the bottom of the eye pin. On three separate silver head pins, string a 3mm Swarovski peridot faceted round bead. Finish each with a wrapped loop and add them to the jump ring.

Step three: Repeat these steps to create the second earring.
Approximate size: 1 ¾ inches
Tip: Only 2 pearls are used in the making of these earrings, to make them more economical, make the matching bracelet and/or earrings and use the leftover pearls for this design.
