Project Description:

The Swarovski crystal Nostalgia mix is one of my favorites. Pairing it with antique brass only adds to the romantic vintage vibe. I hope you enjoy these earrings as much as I do!

Instructions:


Because the creation of these earrings involved using a mix, my pattern may differ slightly from yours. I will tell you how I laid my beads out and in what order I attached them, but you may want to read the instructions and lay out a pattern before you begin.
  1. On a headpin, pick up your 8mm Swarovski round bead. Wire wrap a loop. Trim the excess wire. Set aside.
  2. On an eye pin, pick up a fuchsia bicone. Make a simple loop.
  3. On a head pin, pick up an amethyst bicone. Make a simple loop. Attach it to the fuchsia drop created in step 2.
  4. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the top of the fuchsia drop. Attach the jump ring to the center diamond shaped opening in the filigree finding. Close the jump ring.
  5. On a headpin, pick up a rose bicone. Make a simple loop. Attach it to the diamond shaped opening directly to the right of the opening where you attached your jump ring in step 4. Close the loop.
  6. On a headpin, pick up a light smoked topaz bicone. Make a simple loop. Attach it to the diamond shaped opening directly to the right of the opening where you attached your drop in step 5. Close the loop.
  7. On a headpin, pick up a light amethyst bicone. Make a simple loop. Attach it to the diamond shaped opening directly to the right of the opening where you attached your drop in step 6. Close the loop.
  8. Repeat steps 5 through 7 to add your dangles on the other side of the finding.
  9. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the 8mm drop you created in step 1. Attach the jump ring to the loop at the top of the finding. Close the jump ring.
  10. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the jump ring added in step 9. Close the jump ring.
  11. Repeat step 10 one more time.
  12. Open the loop on an ear wire. Attach it to the 2 jump rings added in steps 10 and 11. Close the loop.
  13. Repeat steps 1 through 12 to create the other earring.
