Step By Step Instructions
- Make two
of these units: On a nickel-free brass headpin, stack the
following: a nickel-free brass Melon Bead, a Filigree Bead Cap, and a faceted glass rondelle. You will probably need to shape the Filigree Bead Cap by opening the petals somewhat to accommodate the glass rondelle. (The top of the bead cap will remain unfilled; the bottom petals will fold around the rondelle.) Make a simple loop at
the end of the headpin.
- Make two
of these units: On a nickel-free brass eyepin, place a faceted glass rondelle, then a Filigree Bead Cap, and a Melon Spacer Bead. Shape the bead cap as you did in Step 1 above. Make a
simple loop at the other end of the eyepin.
- Open the loop on
one of the nickel-free brass French Earwires, attach one of the Step 2 units you made above to the earwire loop, and close the loop.
- Open and attach a nickel-free brass jump ring to the loop on the bottom of the unit you just attached in Step 3 above.
- Hang one of the Step 1 units you made above on the jump ring you just attached in Step 4. Close the jump ring.
- Repeat Steps 3 through 6 for the other earring.
CONGRATULATIONS! You are now ready to wear your elegant new earrings, or make more in different colors!
