Earrings with Bronzite and Cat's Eye Beads

 

We used the following DIY components to assemble these earrings:

 

      + round-nose pliers

      + cutting pliers

      + chain-nose pliers

      + flat-nose pliers

     (see basic set with 4 jewellery pliers)

     (see Smyks' complete range of jewellery tools)

 

First, you thread the bronzite bead and place it in the middle of the wire. Next, you thread 11 small cat's eye beads ...

... and pull the wire backwards and through the bronzite bead.

Tighten the wire. 

Turn your work ... and thread 11 beads onto the other end of the wire.

Pull the wire through the bronzite bead ... and tighten it.

Thread 1 cat's eye bead onto the wire ...

... and form a loop with windings (see Smyks' guide on how to make a loop).

Thread 1 cat's eye bead onto the other wire end...

... and make another loop with windings.

Next, you take the jade teardrop and thread it onto the headpin.

Form a loop (don't start with the windings yet!) ...

and hook it into one of the loops of the pendant.

Now you make the windings over the teardrop. 

Connect the pendant to the earstud with a 3mm jumpring.

Your earring is done. The second one is made in the same way. 

 

Earrings with Green Agate and Onyx

We used the following DIY components to assemble these earrings:

 

1 pair of earwires with ball, gold-plated silver

2 bails with cup and peg, gold-plated silver

2 x 20cm wire, 0.4mm, gold-plated silver

2 jumprings, 3mm, gilded sterling silver

2 green agate beads, 10mm

lapis lazuli, faceted teardrops

approx. 44 green onyx beads, 2mm

+ jewellery glue

+ round-nose pliers

+ cutting pliers

+ chain-nose pliers

+ flat-nose pliers

(see basic set with 4 jewellery pliers)

(see Smyks' complete range of jewellery tools)

 

Fasten the small green onyx beads to the agate bead in the same way as described above.  

For this earring, you glue the bail into the teardrop. Once this is done, you can connect the teardrop to the agate pendant with a 3mm jumpring. 

 

Earrings with Sunstone and Zirkonia

We used the following DIY components to assemble these earrings:

 

1 pair of earwires with crystal and open loop, gold-plated silver

2 headpins with 1.5mm pad, gilded sterling silver

2 x 20cm wire, 0.4mm, gilded sterling silver

2 sunstone beads, 12mm

approx. 46 zirkonia, 2mm, faceted, mixed colours

jade teardrops, pale purple

 

These earerings are made in the same way as described in our first example. 

The eyelet on this earwire can be opened. That's why you can connect the pendant to the earwire without the use of an extra jumpring.
