turquoise howlite tassel earrings

Make this Amazonite and Lava Bead Bracelet Stack with beautiful semi-precious beads. Team them with other colorful beads of different textures, shapes and sizes to add your own touch of style.
Step 1

Step 1 Make two bead links with turquoise nuggets. Slide a nugget onto an eye pin down to the loop end. Make a simple loop above the bead and trim excess wire. Set one aside.

TIP: To form a simple wire loop, first bend the wire to a 90° angle just above the last bead. Trim wire to 3/8"-½" from the bend. Grasp the end of the eye pin wire between the jaws of a pair of round nose pliers. Rotate the pliers toward you, keeping a firm grip on the wire until a small loop is formed.

Step 2

Step 2 Open a large jump ring, slide on a loop from one of the bead links and close the jump ring.

TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring which can cause distortion.

Step 3

Step 3 Cut six 5" long pieces of leather cording and two 5" pieces of wire. Set three leather cords and one wire aside.


Step 4

Step 4 Align three cording pieces and thread them through a large closed jump ring. Wrap one of the 5" wire pieces around the cording, just below the jump ring,.Wrap several times, then cut excess wire.

TIP: Use image as a guide.

Step 5

Step 5 Carefully open the loop at the end of an ear wire, slide onto the top loop of the bead link and close the loop to complete your first Turquoise Howlite Tassel Earrings.


Step 6

Step 6 Make a second earring following the same steps as the first.
