Metallic Earrings

from $2.69

Customize these earrings by choosing a shape that complements the shape of your face. Consider a wider shape if you have a longer face or a longer shape for your friend’s rounder face. Add your own personal touch and make these earrings absolutely eye-catching!

Instructions:

1. Use an eye pin to assemble an earring fish hook. Thread a geometric glass bead and a 6-mm agate bead onto the eye pin. Use round-nose pliers to form a loop at the end of the pin.

2. Insert an eye pin into each of the two curved nickel tube beads. Form a loop at the end of the pin. Attach the two tube beads to the loop of the vertical pin created in the previous step. The two tube beads should curve downward.

3. Take an eye pin and thread the following beads onto the pin in the following order: one spiked antique silver bead + one geometric glass bead + one spiked antique silver bead + one geometric glass bead + one spiked antique silver bead. Form a loop at the end of the pin. Attach the ends of the pin to the ends of the curved tube beads.

4. Take an eye pin and thread the following beads onto the pin in the following order: one spiked antique silver bead + one agate bead + five tiny metal beads. Form a loop at the end of the pin. Thread a second pin with the same beads and attach each one to the ends of the pin created in step 3.

5. Attach the ends of the two pins created in step 4 together.

6. Take an eye pin. Attach three lengths of chain measuring approximately 1.5 inches, 2.5 inches and 3 inches to the eye pin loop. Thread a spiked antique silver bead and a metal cap onto the pin and form a loop at the end of the pin. Attach this newly formed loop to the middle of the earring, i.e. where the two pins created in step 4 meet.

7. Repeat step 6 twice more, attaching the two other metal caps to the pins at the side, between the agate bead and the first tiny metal bead.

8. Once you’ve attached the chains, be sure that the two earrings are the same length.
