|Here is another alternative Spiral-Diamond jewelry making design. This design makes earrings to match your necklace. If you can make the small spiral-diamond component from page 9, and you can make the wrapped bead link required to make the previous necklaces, you will have no problem making these earrings. I used 4.5 inches of 20G soft wire to make each small spiral-diamond wire component. I used two 8mm round onyx beads, 5 inches of 24G 1/2 hard wire to make the wrapped bead link and a pair of 4mm Ear Wire with Post and Loop findings. The steps involved in making these earrings follow:|
Step 2: Using about 2.5 inches of 24G 1/2 hard wire and one of the 8mm round onyx beads to make a wrapped bead link. Instructions for making this link can be found here and in our jewelry making online book, "Wire Design Basics".
Step 3: Connect the loops in the wrapped bead link to the loop a the top of the spiral-diamond wire component and the opposite loop in the wrapped bead link to the loop in the ear wire with post and loop.
Step 4: Make a second earring using the above three steps. Try to make the second small spiral-diamond component a mirror image of the first.
