Stone Trellis Earrings
One of our favorite styles featured in the book: Make A Statement (available here), we are making this project easier than ever to make and with these gorgeous aquamarine stones you can't miss this super sweet DIY!
- semiprecious aquamarine chip beads
- gold plated brass bars
- jump rings
- french earwires
Gather your tools and materials.
About 10mm above the end of the headpin, fold the wire at a 90 degree angle using your chain nose pliers.
With the round nose pliers, hold the end of the tail and bend the wire around the pliers forming a small loop.
Snip off any excess wire using your clippers.
Open the loop slightly and connect it to one side of the bar. Close the loop tightly.
Thread 5 chips onto the wire.
Create another loop on the other side of the wire and connect it to a second bar. Snip off any excess wire using your clippers.
Open a jump ring by twisting the two ends apart, north to south.
Connect the top loops of the two bar together with the jump ring. Close the jump ring tightly.
Thread the ear wire through the jump ring.
Repeat the steps to complete your pair!
