Earrings


Step one:
String the following pattern onto a 3-inch copper 22 gauge head pin:
  • One 6-6.5mm copper potato freshwater pearl
  • One TierraCast gold 5mm nugget heishi spacer
  • One Swarovski 6mm faceted round in Crystal Luminous Green
  • One Czech glass turquoise and amber with Picasso finish elongated oval bead
  • One Crystal Luminous Green faceted round
  • One heishi spacer
  • One copper pearl
Create a wrapped loop at the top of the head pin. For help creating wrapped loops, see our Handy Tip.

Step two:
Attach the antique copper French hook earwire with ball and coil to the wrapped loop. Repeat steps one and two for the other earring.

Bracelet


Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 10 inches long. Attach one end of the wire to half of the Patricia Healey copper heart hook and eye clasp using a 14K/20 gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube. Take a look at our Crimp Tool Handy Tip for help with making crimps.

Step two:
String the following pattern onto the jewelry wire:
  • Three copper pearls
  • One heishi spacer
  • One Crystal Luminous Green round
  • One Czech glass oval bead
  • One Crystal Luminous Green round
  • One heishi spacer
Repeat this pattern two more times and then add three copper pearls onto the wire. Attach the other end of the jewelry wire to the other half of the clasp using another crimp tube.

Necklace


Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 23 inches long. Attach one end of the wire to half of the gold-plated brass tulip toggle clasp using a crimp tube.

Step two:
String on the same pattern from step two of the bracelet and repeat the pattern three times. Then, add six copper pearls to the wire.

Step three:
Slide the Patricia Healey copper dragonfly pendant onto the wire. Make a mirror image of the bead pattern on the other side of the pendant and attach the other half of the clasp to the end of the wire using a crimp tube.
