Fun and flirty design, goes great with any outfit.

What you will need:

* 2 – top drilled 10 x 12 mm faceted briolettes
* 18 – 6mm sterling silver jump rings
* 2 – 2 1/2″of 22 gauge half hard round sterling wire
* 2 – sterling silver french hooks

Make a wire wrapped loop at the end of one of the wire pieces. Slide the briolette onto the wire about 1/4″ from the wrap. Bend the loop up at a 90 degree angle. Take the straight end of the wire, bend it up at a 90 degree angle and begin to wrap it back up towards the loop. Slide 8 of the jump rings onto the top of the earring. Secure the 9th ring thru the eye of the loop. Attach the ear wire through the top loop.

Repeat to create the other earring.
