Retired - French Market Earrings

Retired - French Market Earrings
Imagine yourself strolling the flower, cheese, and fruit stalls of a neighborhood market in Paris while wearing these french-inspired earrings. The pewter beads remind me of the ironwork throughout the capital city and glass drop is classic

Instructions

Remember to double these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  1. Onto a gun metal plated head pin, place 1 black finish pewter beaded "Pamada" bead. Create a wrapped wire loop after the bead and snip off excess wire with flush cutters.
  2. Snip the head off of the head pin. Create a simple wire loop at the end of the pin. Onto the pin, place 1 4mm black finish pewter daisy spacer bead, 1 6mm black finish pewter daisy spacer bead, 1 Czech fire polished 12mm x 16mm glass teardrop bead, and 1 black finish pewter "leaf" bead cap. Right after the bead cap, create a simple wire loop and cut off excess wire with flush cutters.
  3. At the base of the segment you just made, open the simple wire loop (so nearest the wide portion of the Czech bead) and attach it to the wrapped wire loop above the "Pamada" bead. Close the loop back up. Now open the simple wire loop on the opposite end and attach it to the loop at the base of an earring hook. Close the loop back up.
  4. Tout fait!
