Cosmic Tulip Earrings

About this design:

For some reason when I looked at the tulip beads I immediately thought long dangly earrings. I wanted them to be fringy but dainty, they turned out exactly how I wanted. Finished earring length is 4".

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need Czech glass tulip beads, 4mm & 3mm jump rings, 1ft of stainless steel chain, lever backs, 1/2 strand of lavender amethyst 3-3.5mm faceted rounds, 1/2 strand of 4mm amethyst faceted rondelle, 3mm heishis, eye pins, and head pins.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut 3 pieces of wire in each of these lengths: 2" - 1.75" - 1.5"
Do the same for the second earring.
Step 2:
Slide the tulip bead onto the eye pin and create a loop at the top. Make 2 of these.
Step 3:
Slide the amethyst beads onto the head pins and create a loop. Make 6 bead charms. 4 lavender amethyst charms and 2 amethyst charms.
Step 4:
Use the 3mm jump rings to attack the bead charms to the chain. Use the 4mm jump ring to attach the chain to the tulip.
Step 5:
Attach your ear wire. You can add beads to embellish the ear wire if you want.

    Love the lengthy staggered chain below the tulips. The way you decorated the earring findings with the daisy spacers is an outstanding idea too. Classy pair of earrings with a touch of sparkle just in time for the blooming flowers.
