Dancing Angel Earrings (Reboot)

PROJECT E772
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
This precious crystal angel earring will put you in the holiday spirit. She has dainty little "legs" that sway and dance as you move.
Reboot: We have changed the scale slightly on this pretty little dangling angel. She is slightly smaller than pictured.
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.

By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. If you are not familiar with how to use wire looping pliers, please watch the video here.
  2. Place onto a head pin 1 scalloped bead cap facing downwards. Measure 1/4" from the end of the head pin. At the 1/4" point, create a simple wire loop. Snip off excess wire with flush cutters. Repeat this step to create your second "leg" for your angel.
  3. Take an eye pin and open the loop (the same way you would open a jump ring) and slip onto it the two dangles (legs) you made in the step above. Close the eye pin loop.
  4. Place onto the eye pin: 1 Austrian crystal dome bead facing downwards, 1 angel wings bead, 1 Austrian crystal round bead, and 1 filigree bead cap facing upwards. Create a simple wire loop after the bead cap. Trim excess wire with flush cutters.
  5. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook (the same way you would open a jump ring) and link this onto the simple wire loop you just made. Close the loop back up.
  6. Happy Holidays!
