Blue Medallian, Brass, and Swarovski layered earrings

These earrings were so fun to make and look interesting and unique.

  • Materials List2 Large flat beads (blue shell discs are pictures)
  • 2 Brass Bead Cap (flattened and slightly smaller than the flat bead)
  • 2 small round beads
  • 2 Swarovski Crystals
  • E6000 Glue
  • 2 Heads pins
  • 2 Ear wires (leverback)
Put a small amount of glue (while in a well ventilated area) between the flat bead at the back and the flattened brass bead cap. Add another small amount of glue to the center of the bead cap and center a crystal on top. Let dry flat for 24 hours.

String the bead on the headpin and small a small hoop at the top. Open the look on the ear wire, add the looped piece you just made, and close the ear wire loop.

There are lots of possibilities with this design, different colors, different styles.

This last picture has an extra layer of brass filigree on the back. Have fun and experiment with different styles.
