Nightshade Earrings

Thank you for viewing our archived gallery design. This design is in the gallery archive because we no longer stock some of the main items used to make this design and we don’t currently have suitable alternatives. However we didn’t want to remove the design completely as we thought it might inspire you. If you’d like to buy all the items needed to create a project please visit our main design gallery and browse our current designs.

Step 1

Begin by adding a Tourmaline drop to an eye pin, followed by a bicone and a pearl.

Step 2

Cut the eyepin, leaving an approximate 1cm for turning.

Step 3

Using round nose pliers, bend the eyepin to 90 degrees, as close to the pearl as possible.

Step 4

Gripping the very end of the pin with the pliers, turn the pin gently to form a second eye.

Step 5

Using flat nose pliers, open a jump ring and attach the earwire to the eye just made.

Step 6

Using flat nose pliers, open the ring which attaches the drop to the end of the extension chain. Replace the drop with a leaf charm. Repeat twice more.

Step 7

Cut 3 links off the end of one chain and 6 off another, giving you 3 different lengths of chain.

Step 8

Open the eye of the eyepin at the base of the tourmaline drop. Add all 3 extension chains and close the eye. Repeat from the beginning to make a second earring.
