Triangles with Beads Earrings

Instructions for making earrings using WigJig jewelry tools and jewelry wire, beads and common jewelry supplies:


WigJig Triangles Beaded Earrings made using common jewelry supplies.



Making earrings to compliment the Triangles Necklace involves modifying the yoke pattern slightly.  Instead of using seven pegs in the triangle pattern, we used five to make a wire component that is smaller than the yoke for the necklace.  This yoke component appears at right.  It is made out of 4 inches of 20G 1/2 hard jewelry wire. 

Each earring for this pattern are made with three figure 8 connectors, made with 20G wire, 3 or 5 beads with 3 or 5 head-pins, two 1/2 inch segments of medium, round commercial chain, an ear wire finding and the wire component shown at right.  

This is an advanced beginner's jewelry making project.

Instructions for making Triangles with Beads Earrings using jewelry wire, beads, common jewelry supplies and WigJig jewelry tools:

Before beginning to make the body of this earring, please note that the pictures above for the peg pattern on our WigJig jewelry tools show the pattern we used for the yoke of a necklace.  This pattern is larger than the earring pattern by two pegs.  Remove the end pegs on either side so that you only start with five pegs in your pattern. 

Finished WigJig Triangles with Beads Earrings made using common jewelry making supplies.

To start, first make two of the modified yoke components and six total figure 8 connectors.  Cut four 1/2" segments of commercial chain, and count out either 6 or 10 head-pins and 6 or 10 beads.  Hang your beads from the loops in the modified yoke component just like you did for the necklace.  Connect one 1/2" segment of commercial chain to one side of the modified yoke with a figure 8 connector, opening and closing the loops as required.   Do the same for the other side of the modified yoke.  Now connect the ends of the chain to your ear wire finding with a figure 8 connector.  This third figure 8 connector is used so that the earring hangs with the proper orientation.  With that done, make a second earring following the same steps and you are done. 

Summary of jewelry making instructions:

By adjusting the length of commercial chain used to make these earrings, you can made earrings that are smaller and more delicate or longer and bolder.  These earrings can be made with either 4mm or 6mm beads, but could only be made using 8mm beads, if you removed/bypassed the loops made in the middle.
