Chain, Jewelry Wire and Gemstones Earrings Jewelry Making ProjectWire Gems Jewelry Wire and Gemstone Earrings Jewelry Making ProjectAlternative Designs:

One easy alternative design is to replace ear wire with a post style ear wire as shown near-right.  These earrings were made with Argentium Sterling Silver in 18 gauge (item 3008) and 10mm and 8mm man-made pink sapphire gemstones, items 3345 and 3336

Another alternative is that the gemstones in these earrings with pearl beads or with crystal beads.  The center bead can be any round bead up to about 12mm in size.  The lower bead should be smaller and could be oval or teardrop.  When using beads, you would use headpins to attach the beads to the body of the earring. 

Below are three alternative earring designs that use the bottom wire component from our Jewelry Wire & Gemstone Earrings.  These three alternatives use commercial chain instead of the top wire component in our basic earring design.  These three alternative earring designs are very easy to make and may actually be easier to make than the original earring design.  All three alternative designs use 6mm glass crystal beads and the two outside designs also use 4mm glass crystal beads.

Instructions for making these three earring designs begin on the following web page.  Making these earrings will require a jig with a round peg pattern like our WigJig Centaur, Cyclops or Electra.
