Dew Drop Earrings

About this design:

I love how lightweight & delicate these earrings are! These amazonite drops make a great focal piece, and they go great with the pink beads- which give off a beautiful glow. I'll definitely be wearing these a lot this summer!

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Amazonite Faceted Teardrop
  • Pink Opal Seed Beads
  • Gold Chain
  • Gold Earwire
  • Gold 24 Gauge Wire

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Make a bead link with an amazonite teardrop and two pink seed beads on each side. Bend the wire upward. Attach the link directly to a .75" piece of chain. Attach the bead at the top by sliding a piece of wire through the top chain link on the right, the bead, and then out though the top chain link on the left. So the bead should be in between the two pieces of chain, Twist the wire pieces together and create a loop with the round nose pliers. Place in the loop on the earwire.

    Elaina, love how you wrapped the top and added the seed bead, out of which you extended the chain down. Nice detailing. :)
