Flower & Butterfly Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

These fun and flirty earrings are accompanied by the Flower and Butterfly necklace in the Necklace section of the Learning Center. For this design you will need some basic wire working skills. You will use both the simple and wrapped loop. For detailed instructions on how to make these loops, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step one: You will begin by cutting six lengths of chain, three for each earring. You can select the lengths you like, but make sure you have two of each so the earrings match when you are finished.

Step two: On the bottom of the longest chain, attach the butterfly charm using an open jump ring. For the next dangle, simply add a 4mm fire polished green AB to a head pin, and attach it to the next length of chain using a simple loop. The final dangles will be made by stringing a 2mm seamless sterling silver round bead onto a head pin, followed by a 5mm Swarovski padparadscha faceted bicone. These dangles will be attached to the final length of chain with a simple loop.

Step three: To assemble the earrings, open the loop of a 1½ inch, 22 gauge eye pin and slide the unembellished ends onto the loop, then close again. Pull the eye pin through a bead cap from the inside out, and attach it to the earwire using a wrapped loop. Length: You will determine the length by how long you cut the chain.
