Hanging Bat Earrings

PROJECT E8068
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Beginner
Bats are dropping in for a Halloween visit! Enamel charms hang from Czech glass heart beads using eye pins and simple wire loops. A fang-shaped earring post completes the design.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by using pliers to open the loop of an eye pin. Slide on the loop of your bat charm. Close the loop.
  2. Onto the eye pin, slide one glass heart bead. Above the bead, make a simple wire loop. Note: To ensure that your charm faces forward, wrap the top loop in the opposite direction as the bottom loop of the eye pin.
  3. Next, use pliers to open the loop on your earring post. Slide on the simple wire loop from the previous step. Close the loop of the earring post. All done!
