Thalassa Earrings

About this design:

These greek style ornate frames where calling for me to hang some beautiful gemstones onto the center loop. I chose peach moonstone and prasiolite teardrops for beautiful color and sparkle. You can make many earrings with one strand of gems.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need peach moonstone teardrops, prasiolite teardrops, 2 greek ornate open teardrop focals, 2 pairs of ear wire, and 24 gauge wire. I recommend using round nose pliers to open your ear wire loops.


Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut about 4" of wire. Slide your bead onto the wire and twist the wire twice at the top of the bead. Slide both wire tails through the middle loop of the greek focal.
Step 2:
Bring both wire tails down and wrap them around tightly, trim any excess wire. Now you can attach your ear wire.

    What a beautiful way to dress up the Greek focals with the gemstone wrapped teardrops. I like the new metals they come in, and your choice of stones for each metal is great. These are lovely!
