Instructions
 

Step #1

Cut a 3" length of Artistic Wire Mesh, open it into its tube shape and pass an eye pin through the tube.

Step #2

Twist the mesh ends around the eye pin and cover each end with a crimp cover. Add a second crimp cover to one end. 

Step #3

Pull the sides of the mesh away from each other to create a ruffled look.

Step #4

Attach the end with the single crimp cover to the ear wire. 

Step #5

Cut five 1-1/2" lengths of chain and attach them to an eye pin loop. 

Step #6

Pass the eye pin through the wide end of a beading cone and make a basic loop.

Step #7

Connect the two eye pins together as shown inside a large-hole bead*. 

Step #8

Repeat Steps 1-7 to make a matching earring.

Large Hole Bead*

*To make one beaded cylinder, you'll need: .013" diameter bright Beadalon 49, 25 jet 4mm round SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS and Beadalon bead stringing glue.


Step #1

Cut a 18" length of beading wire. 

Step #2

Center the beading wire through a crystal. 

Step #3

Pass each end through another crystal, then cross the wires through opposite ends of a fourth crystal to complete the first stitch.

Step #4

Make five more complete stitches, passing the wires through opposite ends of the original bead to form a beaded ring. 

Step #5

Pass the wire ends around the last stitch so you can add another row. 

Step #6

Knot the ends together.
