Falling Shell Earrings

Brightly coloured and cute, and with using shell charms you get a real taste of beach-side summer.  You can make them with any small shell shapes as long as they are top-drilled.

You will need:
1 Pair Earring Wires 
6 x 10mm Jump rings 
6 x 10mm Shell Hearts (Top Drilled)

What you do:
  • Open one 10mm jump ring and slide on a shell charm. Close the ring tightly. 
  • Open a second jump ring and slide on a heart and the first jump ring before closing tightly. 
  • Do exactly the same with a third ring, this time attaching it to the last ring so you get a chain of three rings all with hearts attached. 
  • Add a final ring with a charm and slip the earing wire on as well before closing tightly.

  • Make a second earring exactly as before.

And here is a pair made with cute little heart shell charms.
