Jewellery Kit Making Drop Innocence Earrings
Earings Step 1
Cut 1 piece of 10.5cm long 20 gauge wire and make a loop at one end. Measure 5cm from the end of the loop and bend it using a 2cm diameter mandrel or a pen. Mould the wire into a drop shape using the mandrel.
Earings Step 2
Make a loop at the other end of the wire and join the ends.
Jewellery Kit Earings Step 3
Take the crafting wire 26 gauge and wrap it around the 20 gauge wire 10 times and at this point take a pen to form the half circles and string 2 x 4mm faceted beads onto the semi circle and then wrap the 26 gauge wire around the 20 gauge wire 10 times. Repeat step 7 times.
Cut the wire excess and using flat nose pliers flatten it. Take the crafting wire 26 gauge and place it between the 2 faceted luster transparent amethyst beads wrapping it around it two times.

Take a piece of 20 gauge wire and string 2 faceted amethyst beads, make a loop in each end. Repeat the step using 1 faceted iris blue. Take a drop pendant rose t and make a pendant (See lesson 08). Join the ends of the earring using one jump ring. Link the 2 faceted amethyst bead, 1 faceted iris blue bead and 1 drop pendant rose and place them to the jump ring. Finally add one fish hook earring to it. Repeat all steps for the second earring.
