Project Description:

I am not afraid of color...I wasn't in the eighties either! A bit of a throw back, but Neon colors are back! I really like the playful neon green Swarovski Pearls and how they pair with the gunmetal links and findings. Of course this design will work with other colors too, but why not step out a bit!

Instructions:


  1. Drop a 4mm pearl onto an eye pin, and make a rosary loop slightly larger than the current eye loop using the round nose pliers or wire looping tool.
  2. Using the larger eye you created above slip the round link into it and close.
  3. Open a jump ring and slip it into the other hole of the round link and the hammered ring and close.
  4. Slip the earring finding onto the eye loop of the 4mm pearl beaded unit, thus creating the earring dangle.
  5. Drop a flat bali, 6mm pearl, metal seed bead on a head pin, start a loop slipping the drop onto the jump ring to hang down in the ring and finish the wrap.
  6. Drop a flat bali, 6mm pearl, metal seed bead on a head pin and start the loop 1/2" from the top of the last bead dropped, slip the drop onto the hammered ring and wrap the loop, at least three times.
  7. Drop a flat bali, 4mm pearl, metal seed bead on a head pin and sart the loop 1/4" from the top of last bead dropped, slip the dorp onto the hammered ring, to the one side of the previous drop, wrapping at least three times.
  8. Drop a metal seed bead, 8mm gunmetal sparkle, metal seed bead, start a loop and slip it onto the hammered ring, making the 6mm drop the middle bead drop with the 4mm on the other side of it, wrap the loop.
