Turquoise and silver are a classic combination, but not all of us know how to forge our own metal components. Well, here's the solution. Using two gauges of wire and a simple wrap-around technique, create your own silver chandelier earring components to complement a turquoise (or other gemstone) teardrop. This is an intermediate project.
Required Materials: Turquoise teardrop, beads, seed beads, wire, ear wires, headpins. See project for complete list.
Tools Needed: Round nose pliers, flat nose pliers, wire cutters. See project for complete list.
