Make Beach Glass Earringscomments (17) July 12th, 2013
On the opposite end of the glass, drill another hole so you wind up with a hole at the top and bottom of the glass; this piece serves as the top dangle of an earring. On a second piece of glass, only drill one hole; this piece will serve as the bottom dangle.
Step 2: With your chain-nose pliers, gently twist open a 7mm jump ring. Slip the one-holed piece of beach glass on the ring and twist the ring until the ends are snugly joined. Now, add a jump ring to one hole in the other piece of beach glass. Join the two pieces of glass by slipping a 5mm jump ring through the jump ring on each piece.
Step 3: Let's finish this gorgeous summery earring. Using chain-nose pliers, twist open another 7mm jump ring and slip it through the other hole on the two-holed (top) piece of glass. Slip an ear wire onto the jump ring and close.
Step 4: Repeat steps 1–3 for the other earring. If you like, you can add a dab of clear nail polish at the join of all your jump rings for added security.
