Irony Earrings

by: Dwyn Tomlinson

This week's inspiration is a set - but I decided to present them separately so I could put in more step-by-step photos.

The Irony of the Iron Zebra Jasper earrings is that they look like carved wood - but are stone!

TIP: if you have trouble visualizing and following written instructions - read them OUT LOUD and see if that helps.

Start by cutting your two pieces of chain - each 1 inch long. Getting the second piece the same length is easy if you hang the cut piece and the chain from a headpin or wire and cut the second piece to the same length.

Assemble your beads on headpins - Gold Bicone, stone rondelle, gold bicone. You can start the wrap, but DON'T finish it.

Take one piece of chain and insert the started wrapped loop into the end link. Finish wrapping the loop and trim the headpin.

Skip a link, and put the next bead in the 3rd link from the end and wrap the loop.

Again, skip a link, and insert the dangle and wrap the loop.

Open the loop on the earring finding, and hang the empty end loop of the chain.

And you're good to go!

And go make the necklace to go with it!
