Inspired by rock engravings the Indah Earrings are the ultimate in minimalist statement jewelry. Scuff with sandpaper to give them a rugged look or brush on a coat of nail polish to give it a pop of color, either way we're smitten.
- chain nose pliers
- 2 brass semi circle findings
- 2 brass disc with 2 holes
- 10 brass rectangle tags
- 12 jump rings
- pair of french earwires
In addition to the materials you'll want a good pair of chain nose pliers for this project. If you don't have any you can grab a set here.
The main component to mastering this project is opening and closing a jump ring properly. In order to keep the jump ring from distorting its shape, open by twisting the right side south and the left side north. Close the jump ring by twisting the ends back towards each other. Note: Never open a jump ring by pulling the two ends away from each other east to west. It is hard to close the jump ring once this distortion happens.
Attach an open jump ring to one of the bottom five holes in the brass semi circle finding.
Add a brass tag onto the open jump ring and then close the jump ring tightly so there is no gap between the two ends.
Repeat adding tags all the way across the bottom 5 holes.
Open another jump ring and attach it to the top hole on the semi circle. Add a brass disc onto the open jump ring. Close the jump ring.
Now open the loop of the French earwire just the same as we did the jump ring by twisting north to south. Thread the top hole of the brass disc onto the earwire. Close the earwire loop.
You now have one completed earring. Repeat all the steps just as we did above to make the second.
These gorgeous earrings are the perfect addition to your swingy summer tops.
