These delicate aqua blue chalcedony iris flower earrings sparkle beautifully in the light and take less than a minute to make! This project includes enough wire to make several similar earrings.
Are you thinking of making these as a gift? Why not add a presentation box or gift bag to your order.
Cut two lengths of 0.3mm sterling silver wire to 5cm with side cutters.
Wire wrap each briolette using round nose jewellery pliers to make a loop which attaches to the bottom of the iris flower.
Then wire wrap down the briolette so it is attached securely.
Side cutters - for cutting and trimming wire, head pins etc.
Round nose pliers - for bending loops in wire
Make the design your own by using other briolette beads and earwires.
