Herkimer Diamond And Charm Drop Earrings

Herkimer Diamond And Charm Drop Earrings

Add a touch of luxury to your jewellery collection with these sparkly herkimer diamond earrings.


1. To start, thread the amethyst chip beads onto the headpin to the desired length.

2. Using round nose pliers create a loop with the headpin at the end of the beads. Twist the wire around the bottom of the loop to secure. Cut off the excess wire and use the round nose pliers to neaten the loop if needed.

3. Twist open a jump ring with a pair of snipe nose and flat nose pliers to add the loop of the beaded headpin and the bottom of a charm before closing the jump ring again.

4. Twist open the loop of an earwire and attach the top of the charm. Close the loop.

5. Repeat the process to create the second earring.
