Elissos Earrings

About this design:

I wanted to find a creative way to use the patinaed bail, I loved it paired with the African brass beads.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need 2 African brass beads, 2 Greek Copper (plated) Patina Spiral Bead Bail, gold head pins, turquoise blue magnesite (light) faceted rondelle 3x4mm, jump rings, and brass ear wire.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Slide the beads onto the head pin in the order shown.
Step 2:
Fold the wire over and back around the wire. I had to turn the bail to the side in order to center it center it.
Step 3:
Twist the wire around 3 or 4 times. Trim any excess wire. Attach your jump rings to the bail and to your ear wire.

    Hi David,
    The patina bail is not showing up on the product list because it’s sold out. Here is the link to the product: https://www.limabeads.com/Greek-Copper-plated-Patina-Spiral-Bead-Bail-8x13mm-P36735?query=36735
