Sugar Skull Party Earrings

PROJECT E2293
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Make six pairs of colorful sugar skull earrings featuring Swarovski Crystal Bicone beads for a touch of sparkle and glam.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the all remaining earrings.
  1. Take one head pin and string on one bicone, one skull bead and one bicone. Make a simple wire loop. Note: if your head pins are a little kinked you can straighten them with the nylon jaw pliers for easy stringing.
  2. Take the remaining scrap of wire and make a simple wire loop on one side. String on one bicone and make another simple wire loop.
  3. Open the loop, same as you would a jump ring and attach it to the loop of the sugar skull component. Close the loop. Move to the other side of this component and open the other loop and attach one earring hook. Close the loop.
