TechniqueChain & Jump Rings
Approximate Size2 1/2 Inches
These earrings make me think of butterflies gently floating above flowers in the summer-filled air!
These earrings layer two butterfly charms together one from Gardanne Beads and one from a Jesse James Beads Design Elements Bead Mix. The layered look brings dangling dimension to the design, and perfectly matches the colors of the Grace Lampwork beads above. These earrings are a wonderful way to herald in spring
Link a gold-filled 20.5 gauge 5mm sparkle jump ring to the hole of the Gardanne Beads purple enameled brass butterfly charm. Add a gold-filled 20.5 gauge 6.5mm sparkle jump ring to the previous jump ring. Add a gold butterfly charm from the Jesse James Beads Design Elements Bead Mix in Lavender Lady to this jump ring using a gold-filled 14k 4.30mm open jump ring.
Slide a faceted purple roundel from the bead mix onto a 2-inch satin Hamilton gold-plated 20 gauge eye pin, followed by a Grace Lampwork 16x10mm purple swirl party rondelle bead, and another faceted purple roundel. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
