  • Level:beginner
  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Earrings (make 2): use an eye pin to make a connector using one flat round blue metal bead. Before closing the loop on this first connector, attach the ear wire.
  • 2
    Use a second eye pin to make a connector using the handpainted Blue roundel bead. Before closing the loop on this second connector, attach it to the bottom of the first connector.
  • 3
    For one earring, make three dangles using the Green teardrop shaped crystal beads as follows: slide a bead onto a headpin, cut the excess head pin so that 3/8 inch remains, and use your round nose pliers to make a loop.
  • 4
    Attach a 6 mm jump ring to the bottom of the second connector and thread on a dangle, a jump ring, and a second dangle before closing it.
  • 5
    Open another jump ring, thread on your third dangle, and then attach this jump ring to the jump ring hanging between the first two dangles
  • 6
    Necklace: use each bead shown in this necklace to create a connector as follows: slide a metal bead onto an eyepin, cut the excess eyepin so that 3/8 inch remains, and use your round nose pliers to make a loop. Repeat this step until you have enough connectors to complete the pattern shown.
  • 7
    Lay the connectors out in the pattern shown. Then connect them to each other one by one using one 6 mm jump ring in between each connector.
  • 8
    Use 6 mm jump rings to attach 5-inch long pieces of chain to both ends of the two strands of beads that you have made. Use jump rings to attach a lobster claw clasp to the ends of the chain.
