Holiday Angel Earrings

PROJECT E6004
Designer: Suki Song
Skill Level: Intermediate
Feeling the holiday cheer? This gorgeous pair of earrings feature a beautiful angel wearing a dress of Swarovski crystal.
Instructions
For step-by-step photo instructions, please view our Friday Out Friday blog post.
  1. These instructions make one earring. Repeat all steps to make the second earring.
  2. Begin by taking one headpin, and string on one pearl.
  3. String on the angel wings.
  4. String on the Swarovski arrow bead.
  5. Create a simple wire loop at the bottom of the arrow bead, as close to the actual bead as you can.
  6. Take one foot of chain and break it down into six 2 inch pieces. It's okay if the lengths are a little off. The different sizes will create a cool cascading look.
  7. You have six lengths, but you'll end up only using five.
  8. Open up the wire loop you created- and begin stringing on all the chain lengths. After, close the wire loop.
  9. Take the earring post and place a little bit of E6000 onto its back. Press it down firmly onto the center of the angel wings. This will be the back of your earring.
  10. Let it dry for at least 30 minutes. Now, you can add the backing.
  11. You're all done!
