One Strand Wonderland 3 Earrings







Designed by Cynthia Kimura

These earrings are just one of many designs you can create with one strand of Dakota Stones gemstones! Gemstone beads make fabulous accents to sparkling crystal, bright silver and so much more. Learn how to make these earrings and then dream up more designs for an entire strand of gemstones! Check out the Beads, Baubles and Jewels segment featuring Kristal Wick and Katie Hacker to see more of these earrings.

Instructions:
Step one:
String a Swarovski 9.6mm teardrop in Crystal AB onto a 2-inch 22 gauge sterling silver head pin. Create a wrapped loop at the top of the head pin. For more help with wrapped loops, see our Wrapped Loop Handy Tip. Instead of trimming the end of the head pin, wrap it around the top of the teardrop bead. Repeat this step to create another dangle.

Step two:
Cut a length of sterling silver 22 gauge round wire approximately two inches long. Make a simple loop at the end. See our Simple Loop Handy Tip for more instruction on this technique. Attach one of the dangles you made in step one to the simple loop using a sterling silver 6.10mm open jump ring. Learn the proper way to open and close a jump ring with this Handy Tip Video. String an Indian silver 6mm daisy spacer onto the wire, followed by a Dakota Stones blue apatite 10x20mm double-drilled rectangle bead. Repeat this step, making sure to string your next piece of wire through the second stringing hole of the same apatite bead.

Step three:
Create a loop with your two wires at the top of the rectangle bead. You can use the same techniques featured in this Handy Tip for creating your loop. Attach a French hook earwire with ball to the loop using a jump ring. Repeat steps one through three to create the other earring.
