Seaside Chandelier Earrings Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
The turquoise of the water and yellow of the sun are reflected in these playful chandelier earrings. These are wonderful for your everyday wear or will make a memorable gift.
Step one: On a sterling silver eye pin, string a 5mm Swarovski turquoise faceted bicone followed by a 7mm porcelain yellow spiral flat square bead and another bicone. Attach it to an earwire with a wrapped loop. For instructions on how to make a Wrapped Loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step two: String the same pattern of beads on a head pin and attach it with a wrapped loop to an open jump ring and attach that jump ring to the bottom of an antique rhodium plated pewter small vine link. On two more head pins, string an antique copper faceted spacer followed by a 8.5mm turquoise with dark Picasso brick and another spacer. Attach each of these head pins a jump ring and add one of those to each side of the link with a wrapped loop.
Step three: Attach the link to an open jump ring. Add another jump ring and connect that to the earwire component. You now have a completed earring! Repeat all three steps to complete the second earring.
