LillyPilly Earrings

March 5th, 2009 · 6 Comments

Hello, My name is Megan and I work at Artbeads.com in the Product Marketing Department. I’ve always loved the Lillypilly Shell Pendants and a couple months ago I was going through some product and came across the light olive swirling ivy pendants. As soon as I saw them I knew I wanted to make them into earrings. To dress them up a little, I added 3 freshwater pearls.

    I LOVE this design! Are you willing to share how you added the pearls?

    It is really easy to add the pearls. I used the handy tip How to make a wire wrap on a top drilled bead to connect the shell to the earwire. For the pearls, I used small headpins and made simple loops and then attached those to the “bail” that connects the pendant to the earwire.
