Description

Years ago, I created the Copper Connection Earrings project using TierraCast antique copper hammered links. These links continue to be a source of inspiration. This time, I chose to mix my metals a little bit and nest the rings differently. I love the result!

Shanna Steele, Aunties Beads Designer

Instructions:


A note about this piece: I chose to double up on jump rings to add substance, drama and extra security to the links and give the earrings a bit of a chain maille vibe. You don't have to do this, but I would recommend it.
  1. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the 10mm hammered link. Close the jump ring. Attach another jump ring to the same link.
  2. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the 2 jump rings added in step 1. Close the jump ring. Attach another jump ring.
  3. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the 2 jump rings added in step 2. Then attach it to the 20mm hammered link. Close the jump ring. Attach another jump ring.
  4. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the 2 jump rings added in step 3. Close the jump ring. Attach another jump ring.
  5. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the 2 jump rings added in step 4. Then attach it to the 13mm hammered link. Close the jump ring. Attach another jump ring.
  6. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the top of the 13mm hammered link. Close the jump ring. Attach another jump ring.
  7. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the jump ring added in step 6 then to the loop on an ear wire. Close the jump ring. Attach another jump ring.
  8. Repeat steps 1 through 7 to complete the pair.
