Who doesn’t love sparkly, dangling earrings? These are simple earrings to make for a beginner because I was able to make them and I know very little about jewelry making.
For this project you need:
Flexible jewelry wire (I used silver 7 strand)
4 Crystal 16ss Swarovski Elements Rose Montees
2 silver crimp beads
2 silver fish hook earrings
Rose Montees are rhinestones with channels in the back for stringing. Begin by cutting a piece of wire about 6 inches long. Thread one end of the wire through one of the channels then take the other end of the wire and thread it through the cross channel so that your wire crosses and looks like the picture above. Pull the wire ends through until you can no longer see the bottom loop and the wire fits flush with the rose montee. Take another rose montee and thread it through following the same method stopping about ¾ of an inch from the bottom rose montee so that there is a small loop showing between both rose montees.
Thread a crimping bead through both wires and then your fish hook earring. Thread your wire back through your crimping bead and pull these 2 wire ends until your loop and fish hook are about ¾ of an inch from the middle rose montee. Crimp your bead and cut off the excess wire.
Repeat these steps with the other earring.
When you are finished, you have a light, sparkly pair of earrings for everyday or that special occasion!
