Green and Gold Earrings

By:

These lovely earrings from Katie Hacker made with green Swarovski crystal beads are perfect for a St. Patrick's Day party. They are pretty additions to a fancy outfit the rest of the year too, especially for a green-eyed lass.

 

Materials:

  • 6 peridot 6mm bicone Swarovksi crystal beads
  • 8 peridot 4mm bicone Swarovksi crystal beads
  • 2 gold ear wires
  • 18” length of .015” diameter gold Beadalon 7 beading wire
  • 28 gold #2 Beadalon crimp beads
  • Beadstorm™ Chain Nose Pliers
  • Desginer Flush Cutters
  • Desginer Crimper

 

Instructions:

  1. To make the teardrop part of the earring: cut one 4” length of beading wire. Pass the end through a crimp bead, make a small loop and pass it back through the crimp bead. Crimp it.
     
  2. Pass the wire through the following beads: crimp, 4mm, crimp, 6mm, crimp, 6mm, crimp, 6mm, crimp, 4mm, crimp. Don’t crimp any of the crimp beads yet.
     
  3. Pass the wire end through a crimp bead, make a small loop and pass it back through the crimp bead. Crimp it.
     
  4. Adjust the beads so they’re in the center of the wire, then crimp the outermost crimp beads on to hold the beaded section in place.
     
  5. To make the cloverleaf shape: Cut a 5” length of beading wire. Fold it in half and pass the ends through a crimp bead; adjust it so it’s ¼” from the fold. Crimp it.
     
  6. Hold the wires together and pass them through a 4mm bead and a crimp bead. Crimp it.
     
  7. Pass each wire end through a crimp bead. Bend one wire in a loop and pass it back through the crimp bead. Crimp it. Repeat this step with the other wire.
     
  8. Hold the wires together and pass them through a crimp bead, 4mm bead and a crimp bead. Crimp the crimp beads and cut off any extra wire.
     
  9. To attach the wires to the earring, open the lower loop on the ear wire. Slide one end of the long wire onto the loop, then the cloverleaf, then the other end of the long wire. Close the ear wire loop.
     
  10. Repeat Steps 1-9 to make a matching earring.

Tip:  Choose beads in any shape or color for an equally dramatic effect.
