St. Patrick’s Day Earrings – Employee Design

Well, I had time this morning to take a few quick photos of my St. Patrick’s Day earrings! I made these one afternoon while I was playing around with some supplies I had on hand. The design idea came to my mind as I debated what to do with some Swarovski Erinite faceted rounds. I’ve wanted to create a design with them for awhile, but when I first purchased them they turned out a bit large for the project I had planned. I think they worked well in these earrings!

I wanted these earrings to be chandelier earrings, but I didn’t have a chandelier form, so I looked at what I had and decided to try some memory wire because it likes to hold its shape. I also used 6mm Erinite faceted rounds accented with silver-lined crystal delicas and some silver-plated round beads.

I created dangles with the Erinite rounds and seed beads, and threaded them onto the memory wire with the silver-plated round beads.

At the top of the earrings, I fashioned simple loops and connected the ends of the memory wire together. Then, I threaded a jump ring through the loops. The tension of the memory wire kept the loops tight against the jump ring.

These earrings turned out light enough that I can wear them comfortably all day, and I’m looking forward to wearing them on March 17th!
