Purple Rain Earrings Tutorial
Created by: Polly Nobbs-LaRue
Add beads to the head and eye pins, and make simple loops. Try to keep all your loops the same size.
For the top beaded eye pin (that connects the ear wire to the filigree finding), make your loop perpendicular (90 degrees) to the original loop, so the earring hangs straight. If necessary, use 2 pairs of flat-nose pliers to adjust the angle.
Open the top loop of the eye pin, rather than the loop on the ear wire, when connecting all the components.
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are no longer available, so we've moved the whole project into the "Misc Jewelry Tutorials with Issues" area while we decide what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make this project, or retire the tutorial.
