Pearl & Black Spinel Drop Earrings

Pearl & Black Spinel Drop Earrings

This jewellery making project is great to try if you're a jewellery making beginner. We've used sparkling black spinel briolettes and freshwater half drilled white pearls but you can choose any beads you wish to complete the look.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS

1. Begin by wire wrapping the spinel briolette using 0.3mm sterling silver wire. You can see step by step instructions with photos here.

2. Apply glue to the setting peg, set the pearl bead and leave to dry. 

3. Use snipe nose pliers to open the loop of the earstud and attach the wire wrapped hoop - close using the pliers.

4. Repeat these steps for the other earring.

Your stunning earrings are now complete.
