Day at the Beach Earrings

Project details:

in favorites

Whimsical fringe in ocean hues make these earrings a summer staple. The carved mother of pearl birds flash their iridescent rainbow colors, simply beautiful.

Supplies you’ll need:

You will need:

  • 2 mother of pearl carved birds
  • 1ft of beachside stainless steel Miyuki seed bead chain
  • ear wires
  • 2 eye pins
  • 2 jump rings

Recommended tools: fine tip wire cutters

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

Create a bead link with the carved bird and an eye pin. Slide the bead on the eye pin and create a loop on the end. Attach the bird to your ear wire.

See Tip: Wire Wrap a Bead Link

Step 2

I cut six 1 to 1 1/2" pieces of chain for each earring. Use the end loops of the chain to connect them to the jump ring. Attach the ring to the bird link. Trim chain in a staggered shape to add depth. My chain lengths ranged in length from 1" - 0.75" - 0.5"

Step 3

You could embellish the ends of the chain if you like.
