Autumn Cascade Earrings Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
Gold and bronze summons the fall season, whether you are ushering in autumn or simply look ravishing in warm neutral tones, these earrings will be a certain must have.
Step one: On 1½-inch gold-filled eye pins, make several links. Use the 6mm fire-polished earth tone mix and 4mm gold Swarovski pearls for your focal beads. Accent with 5mm and 3mm gold-filled rounds and 4mm vermeil daisy spacers. You do not need to follow our pattern exactly. These are very free form earrings. Our artist made 8 links of varying lengths for each earring, and one to connect the dangles to the earwire. Finish each link with a simple loop. For detailed instructions on how to make simple loops, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step two: Attach the links to one another to make 3 short strands (6 for two earrings). Make sure the lengths are all a bit different.
Step three: At the bottom of each strand, attach an antique gold pewter oak leaf charm using a gold-filled 14k open jump ring 4.30mm x .030mm.
Step four: Attach your links to the spacer bar. For the outside links, simply run a headpin through the bar and make a simple loop at the end. Attach your links to that loop. For the center, use and eye pin. On one end attach the links, then add a 3mm gold-filled round, bring it through the center hole, add another round, and make a simple loop.
Step five: To attach the links to the earwire, make another loop using a 6mm fire-polished bead surrounded by daisy spacers on an eye pin. Attach one end of the eye pin to the links, and make a simple loop in the other end to attach it to an open jump ring, which in turn, connects to the earwire.
