Winter Wonderland Crystal Tree Earrings (Reboot)

PROJECT E132
Designer: Sarah Diamond
Skill Level: Beginner
Austrian crystal Christmas tree earrings aren't new, but most are only 3-tiered due to limited bead sizes. Take advantage of our wide range of sizes of Margaritas in Crystal AB, Crystal, Emerald, and Emerald AB!
Reboot: This project is a slight reboot with just a little shorter tree (by one level) and a slightly different earring hook.
Instructions

Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

Follow the instructions below twice to make two earrings.
  1. Take one head pin, and stack beads on it in the following order, starting from the bottom: one 6mm crystal Cube, one 14mm marggarita, one 12mm marggarita, one 10mm marggarita, one 8mm marggarita, one 6mm marggarita, one 4mm crystal bicone.
  2. Using the wrapped loop technique, create a closed loop at the top of the head pin, no more than 4mm in diameter.
  3. Hang the finished tree from an earring hook.
When making your second earring, make sure the wrapped loop is the same size as the loop on the first tree, or your earrings will be different lengths. Want your tree to be even taller? Try stacking a second 10mm marggarita bead above the first in the tree, and possibly doubling up the 12mm and/or the 8mm marggarita for the biggest Austrian crystal Christmas tree earrings in town. Check out our (E129) Rockefeller Christmas Tree earrings for an evergreen version of these earrings.
