Belle Vie Earrings

About this design:

For these earrings, I attached tiny clusters of labradorite & seed beads above a moonstone charm inside of a gypsy hoop. I love the uniqueness of the design & how fun they are to wear!

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Brass Gypsy Hoops
  • Gold Earwires
  • Gold Headpins
  • Gold 3mm Jump Rings
  • Small piece of gold chain
  • 11/0 Seed Beads
  • Labradorite Faceted 2.5mm Rounds
  • Peach Moonstone Tumbled Nuggets

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Begin by using a headpin & round nose pliers to make a bead charm with the moonstone nugget. Attach the moonstone charm to a small piece of chain (about 1 link long). Use another jump ring to attach the chain to the small hoop inside of the gypsy hoop. The moonstone should hang inside of the gypsy hoop. Slide the hoop onto an earwire.
Step 2:
Make bead charms with the seed beads & labradorite. I made 13 for each earring. Slide 2-3 charms onto a jump ring & attach to the chain. Repeat until you have your desired amount. I also attached some to the small hoop on the inside of the gypsy hoop.
