Copy Cat Anthropologie Earrings


What is this, I have a new jewelry tutorial to share??? Ye gods! Heh :) It's been a little bit since I've last posted a tutorial but I finally have a new project to share with you....and get ready! It's everyone's favorite...an anthro-knock off!!

I was scrolling around  the jewelry section of Anthropologie's site online and came across these really pretty Beaded Lochan Earrings. I loved the crystals and the wire wrapping and tiered oval drops...a great design in my opinion!

I thought I would make my own version in pink (of course) because this is my blog about my girlish whims and when pink is an option I'm always going to pick it ;) I think they turned out super girly and cute!

Here is how to make your own version!

Supplies
Gold wire in about 16 and 26 gauge, light peach crystals, pink crystals peach crystals, earring wires, needle nose pliers, round nose pliers and wire cutters.

Steps:
 Cut a length of 16 gauge wire useing wire cutters and form into a "U" shape.  Use needle nose pliers to bend one end back 90 degrees

Use round nose pliers to bend the end back into a loop

Do the same thing for the other wire end but bend it horizontally like so:

Grasp the end again with round nose pliers and bend back around into a loop

Hook this new loop around the original loop and squeeze it closed using needle nose pliers

Repeat this process for a total of six wire loops in three different sizes.  Please note that I have completely NOT perfected my wire wrapping skills...I'm sure with practice you could make your loops a lot nicer than these but I was just making these earrings for myself so they don't need to be 100% perfect :)

Now it's time to start wire-wrapping the crystals onto the wire loops!

Cut a length of long wire using wire cutters and wrap it around the top of your wire loop a few times

Add on one crystal at a time and wrap the wire around the loop in between each crystal

Repeat until you have enough crystals to fill up the wire loop and then wrap a few more wraps of wire at the end of the loop to secure and then trim off any excess wire.

One pretty little beaded loop ready to go :)

Start wrapping the second largest wire loop with another color pink crystal. Wrap halfway around the loop and then interrupt the pattern by wire-wrapping the large beaded loop onto the loop you are currently working with.

Wrap a few times to secure and then pick up the pattern of wire wrapping crystals back onto the loop

Should look like this when you are done:

Next start wire wrapping crystals onto your smallest loop again stopping halfway around the loop

Wire wrap the other two loops onto the small loop and then continue adding crystals to the small loop.

After everything is attached it should look like this!

Last step is to open up the simple loop at the top of your wire loop with needle nose pliers and add on an earring hook.  Squeeze the loop shut again with pliers and you are done!

A pretty and playful pair of pink earrings.  If i could have used any more "p" words in that sentence I think I could have won a prize ;)

These are NOT small earrings, they definitely make an impact when you wear them! But you can always alter the size of them somewhat by how big you make your wire loops.  I'm not afraid of big earrings though and I don't think you should be either ;)

These pink colors are perfect for spring, but of course you could always pick your own favorite color crystals to make these earrings whatever color you want!

Because after all, it's super hard to talk about spring or spring colors when my back yard still looks like this:

BAH. Bah humbug mother nature! Alas.  I will keep on making spring jewelry despite the fact that it still looks like a winter wonderland around here!
