Moroccan Swirl Earrings Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
The combination of the luminescent green and black swirled lampwork bead with the intricate pattern of the silver reminds us of the rich and colorful textures of Morocco.
Step one: On a sterling silver 2½-inch head pin thread a sterling silver shiny saucer bead, an antique silver plated pewter beaded spacer, a pearly green silver-lined lampwork roundelle and a saucer bead.
Step two: Finish with a wrapped loop. For help making wrapped loops please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Connect the loop to the sterling silver French hook with ball and coil earwire. Repeat the instructions to make the other earring.
