On hot days, the Summer Cool earrings will perfectly refresh the ladies’ look by adding some zest to it. Earrings are quite large in size but very light and airy.
We will need:
– jewelry wire 0.8 mm, 0.6, 0.5, 0.4 and 0.3. In this case, the author has a silvered wire from Germany with a copper core;
– faceted beads 4 and 6 mm (white and blue);
– metal pendants in the form of leaves and butterflies;
– beads ONO 4 mm (milk);
– silvery connecting rings;
– round nose pliers, thin nose pliers, wire cutters.
Take two pieces of wire 0.6 mm, each approximately 20 centimeters long. Bend one piece in the form of an oval, twist the tips with round pliers, cross them, making something like a knot made of wire. Here is the author of homemade and turned the foundation for future earrings.
Take a 0.5 mm long piece of 10 centimeters, twist both ends with round fingers, conditionally divide the segment into 3 parts, measure 1/3 of the part, make a loop in the form of a drop. The photo shows what should end up.
Then the author took a wire of 0.3 mm (length of 25 centimeters) and began to wind the base beautifully from above, fastening the tips between them. At a distance of 2 centimeters from the top of the base, attach a wire with an eyelet to the inside of the base, attaching it to the base, leaving the distance below to decorate the earring. It turned out that the whole earring is entwined with wire.
Using wire of 0.3 mm (15 cm long), attach a metal pendant to the earring base. Gently press the ends of the wire to the main parts of the earring, try not to damage the silver-plated layer of material. It is better to use pliers or thin-nose pliers with silicone tips for such work.
Gently go to the bottom of the earring, fasten the blue beads between the base and the inner wire, as shown by the author in the photo.
Next, cut a wire of 0.3 mm 20 cm in length and fix the beads with white beads to the base of the leaflet, covering the “working” moments. The author took 5 beads from the author, another quantity may take you – it all depends on the size of your product and the diameter of the beads themselves.
This is how the product will look from the inside.
Then make a pendant with a blue bead for a butterfly pendant. One end of the wire 0.4 mm (15 cm long) passes through the hole of the bead. Make a loop from the other tip, pass the second end into the hole of the bead, with the other end of the wire make a similar loop on the other side of the bead. Next, beautifully wrap around the loose ends of the wire around the loops, fasten, and bite off unnecessary remnants.
Using a connecting ring of 0.5 mm, fasten the butterfly to the bead, then attach the entire pendant to the ring at the top of the base, then twist the ring with the help of a round nose pliers. All this is necessary in order to secure the suspension. It is unlikely that you would like the decoration to simply fall apart into details.
Make a cord out of 0.8 mm (5-7 centimeters) wire diameter. Using two connection rings (6 and 7 mm), attach the fastener to the base. Sharpen the tip of the fastener with an ordinary nail file to round off a sharp cut.
A second wire earring is made in the same way.
That’s all, “Summer Cool” in front of you! It’s up to you to wear it yourself or give it to someone. But the decoration of the author’s homemade really turned out beautiful and “cool.” Wear it with pleasure and create new beautiful crafts with your own hands!
