Amazonite earrings

Amazonite earrings
These earrings have been made with Amazonite beads. Amazonite is a natural stone which usually comes in different shades of light aqua blue. The beads from our collection show a slight variation in colour, which ranges from blue to brown. We always aim to send you a varied lot.
For this set of earrings I have used 3 different types of beads, 2 round sizes and one rondelle bead. The blue and brown shades of the Amazonite are accentuated beautifully by the bronze-coloured details. Finally, the Art Nouveau ear hooks complete the look!

How do you proceed?
Take a 50 mm headpin and place in the following order:

Cut off the headpin and try to bend the eyelet as close to the last bead cap as possible.

The eyelets of the Art Nouveau ear hooks can be folded down, which makes it easier to attach the pendant to the ear hook.
