Gold Garnet Drop Earrings

Gold Garnet Drop Earrings

We love how elegant these garnet drop earrings are! Featuring our juicy rondelle beads which add a lovely sparkle, alongside our gold vermeil geometric charms which frame these little gems perfectly.

Did you know that garnet is January's birthstone? This would make a lovely handmade birthday gift that you could pop into one of our gift bags or boxes.

With the products listed in the shopping list, you will receive more beads and wire than needed which you can use for even more projects!


1. Begin by using side cutters to cut a small length of wire, giving you enough room to form two loops on either side of your bead. Use the tips of round nose pliers to form a loop at the end of the wire. Thread a garnet bead onto the wire, trim the wire if needed and use your pliers to form another loop to sit above the top of the bead. You could also choose to continue to wire wrap underneath the loop a few times to add a decorative effect and add more security to your design.

2. Use a pair of snipe or flat nose pliers to twist open a jump ring, attach it to the top of the geometric charm and add the loop of the gemstone bead.

3. Twist open another jump ring and attach it to the other jump ring which has the gemstone drop. This will allow the earring drop to hang centrally once attached to the earwire.

4. Use snipe nose pliers to twist open the loop of the earwire and attach the top jump ring before twisting the loop closed to secure.

5. Repeat the previous steps for your other earring and your design is complete!

Kernowcraft's jewellery making kits are aimed to inspire you - therefore the step by step instructions are available online only with a shopping list, where you can easily customise the design to suit you. We recommend printing or bookmarking this page ready to follow.

The suggested products used in this project are suggestions to inspire you. Products used were compatible at the time of making but do be aware that gemstones are natural and hand cut stocks can vary, so do use your own common sense as to the compatibility of each item when making.
