Deluxe Duplex Earrings

The earrings shown at right are the matching earrings for the Deluxe Duplex bracelet.  These earrings are made with the same duplex wire component and the two to one wire component used to make the bracelet.  (For the earrings shown at right, the WigJig Delphi or Centaur was used to make the wire components where for the bracelets shown previously the WigJig Olympus or Olympus Lite was used to make the wire components.  This allowed the earrings to be a slightly smaller version of the same wire component as used in the bracelet.)  The materials required to make these earrings are 10 inches of 20 gauge wire (preferably 1/2 hard), 10 inches of 22 gauge wire (preferably 1/2 hard), one pair of ear wire findings, 8 head pins, 12 four mm beads, and 8 2x4mm bugle beads. 

Using the instructions provided on page 12 and your 20 gauge wire, make two duplex wire components and two 2:1 wire components.  Connect one duplex wire component to one 2:1 wire component using the 22 gauge wire and a pair of 4mm beads.  Using the techniques described in page 14, make two wrapped bead links, one with each 4mm bead to connect the two wire components.  Once the 2:1 wire component and the duplex wire components are connected, thread a 4mm bead and a 2x7mm bugle bead onto a head pin and connect that combination to one of the empty loops in the duplex wire component.  Do this for a total of four loops in the duplex wire component.  When you have completed four head pins with beads hanging one each from the loops in the duplex wire component, then open the loop in your ear wire finding and connect the single loop at the top of the 2:1 wire component to the ear wire finding, then close the loop in the ear wire finding.  Follow these same steps to make your second earring. 

The beads used in the earrings shown are Swarovski 4mm Ruby Bicone beads, Item 2497 in our Internet store, and Crystal 2x4mm Bugle Beads with Luster, Item 1880 in our Internet store.  The ear wire finding show is a Gold-Filled Lever Back Ear Clip, Item 0117 in our Internet store.
