Green Elegance

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? I love the way they all sparkle together. It is easy to do and looks like a high end piece of dressy jewelry. What advice would you give someone starting this project? i would recommend that you not use the same pliers on the beading wire that you do on the ear wires. The beading wires have steel in them and will dull a pair of flush cutters very quickly. You get what you pay for when you buy inexpensive cutters. If you are only going to do a couple of projects it will be fine to use the same ones. but for repeated use, get a hardened edge one for the beading wire. you will be glad you did.

What you will need

  • I used green swarovski rondelles
  • gold color metal swarovski crystal rondelles
  • clear fire polished multifaceted czech glass beads
  • silver white flexible beading wire (so it did not show thru the clear beads)
  • gold color lobster clasp
  • jump rings and crimps
  • non tarnish brass 20 gauge wire for the earwires
  • gold color headpins
  • bent nose pliers
  • round nose pliers
  • flush cutters
  • bail maker pliers for earring shape
  • hammer and steel block to gently harden earwires.
