dangly drop earrings1

I am a fan of jewelry… especially making it myself. Call me “The Queen of the Copycat“. I just love it and my jewelry cabinet doesn’t lie.

But not dainty, fine, pretty jewelry. But the big, gaudy, blingy kind. Like this chunky necklace I made with hardware items or this other one with nuts and bolts. When it comes to earrings, the longer the better. And I adore dangly drop ones.

I fell in love with the $48 Piccadilly Chandelier Earrings from Anthropologie. So when Michaels challenged me to ReCreate something I decided these pretty chandelier earrings would be just the right project.

They were super simple to ReCreate with a few supplies from Michaels and a little wire wrapping.

How To Make the Knock-Offs Anthro Piccadilly Earrings

1.  Start by threading the wire through the briolette.

Leave a tail and cross the two pieces of wire in the middle.

Pinch the top with your chain nose pliers.

2.  Begin wire wrapping down towards the briolette.

Stop when the hat on the briolette is as far down as you want it.

Using your flush cut pliers cut the wire in the back where you won’t see it.

Then using your chain nose pliers squeeze the wire snug with the wrapped wire.

3.  Using your flush cutters leave about 1/2” tail on the top wire.

Using your round nose plier form a loop at the top.

Close the loop.

Knock-Offs Anthro Piccadilly Earrings – Version II

I couldn’t stop there. I also grabbed some smaller briolettes from Michaels and used those with the smaller sized circle connectors in the pack.

I can’t decide which ones I like the best.

I got all my supplies for 40% off so I spent right at $15 plus tax.

Not bad for 6 pairs of knock-off earrings at $2.50.

  1. oH how pretty and so timely as well! I just got my ears repierced after not wearing earrings for more years than I care to admit. Only 5 more weeks before I can wear something really cute! (danglies will have to wait a bit longer as i don’t want to risk it)

  2. So why am I not surprised I like them better, and you do jewelry too? And that is one thing I do. I just haven’t done for about a year and a half. I don’t make cabinets — I just admire those people who do. LOL
