Project Description:

Conjunction junction, what's your function? I found this pattern in a blog and put my spin on it! Mixing the metal finishes and the beads used make the earrings totally different, from pair to pair! Just join the links of beaded jump rings in a ring and drop them from earwires.

Instructions:


If you have never worked with jump rings before, please see the Jump Rings Technique.

Wavy Disc Earrings
  1. Layout (10) antique copper jump rings and 20 silver wavy discs on your work surface.
  2. Using two pairs of chain nose pliers open one jump ring and slip two wavy discs on to it and close.
  3. Open another jump ring and add one wavy disc, the above jump ring, wavy disc and close.
  4. Repeat building one to the jump ring chain as in the above step, until you have connected all (10) jump rings.
  5. Before closing the last jump ring, join the chain by slipping the end or first jump ring on to it, between the beads and close, thus making a ring.
  6. Open an ear wire and add it to one of the jump rings and repeat to complete the pair.


Round Bead Earrings
  1. The round beads work just the same, however they will be a bit harder to handle, because you have less space to work with.
  2. I am alternating colors on this pair so build accordingly.
  3. On the first jump ring, add (2) Antique Copper Rounds and close.
  4. On another jump ring, add a Gunmetal Round, the first jump ring, Gunmetal Round and close.
  5. Continue building the chain as in the above pair, but again caution at the last step as it will be tight!
