8mm 1/2 Drilled Pearl Beads Earrings Jewelry Making ProjectThe earrings shown at right are very slightly more difficult to make than the earrings we described Bead Cap for Setting 8mm 1/2 Drilled Pearl Beadsin the prior pages.  The finding that we use to set our pearl beads for these earrings is called a bead cap and it has a loop on one end for attaching the bead cap to earrings or to a chain.  Item 3325 is a gold-filled bead cap as shown at left.  Item 3326 is a sterling silver bead cap.  To make these earrings start by adding jeweler's cement like item 0359 to the post in the bead cap finding.  Once the post is covered with cement, slide an 8mm 1/2 drilled pearl bead onto the post until it rests flush in the cup of the bead cap.  Then set the finding and pearl bead down for Pearl Beads Jewelry10 minutes to allow the cement to set.  After the cement has fully set, then take your bent chain nose pliers and open the loop in your ear wire finding.  (Please select here for instructions on how to open a loop and close the loop.)  Once you have the loop open, slide the loop in the bead cap into position and then use your bent chain nose pliers to close the loop.  That will complete your earring.  In the earrings shown above-right, we used ear wire finding item 0117 in our Internet store.  We have many other ear wire findings and any of them would be suitable for making this style earring. 

For that formal occasion where you wear your black dress and want to ooze understated elegance, what better jewelry combination that the pearl beads drop earrings shown here with a filigree bail necklace as shown on the prior page.  You can view this combination on a mannequin at right.
