These pearl and filigree drop earrings are a quick and easy project that is sure to bring lots of compliments! I used antique silver findings and filigree pieces, and silvery-gold pearls.
Start at the Top
Put the smaller two pearls
on two eye pins, and then trim them to an appropriate length so you can add a loop at the top. You may need to practice a few times so you get a sense of how much wire
is required to make a loop. Before closing the loop completely, attach the earwire by slipping the bottom loop of the earwire
onto your loop. Close it snugly and you’re done with the top part!
Add the Connector
Use a jump ring
to connect the beaded eye pin to the filigree
piece. Gently open the jump ring
by pushing one end toward you and the other away with two pliers. Hook it onto the bottom loop of your eye pin and the top loop of your connector, and close the jump ring.
Attach the Bottom Bead
Lastly, take your larger 10mm pearls
and put them on your head pins. Trim them to the right length and make your loop, hooking the loop through the bottom of your filigree
piece. Close the loop and you’re done!
