Purple Sugar Skull Earrings

PROJECT E3057
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
With a nod to Dia de los Muertos, these bright and playful sugar skull earrings are the perfect accessory for a fun Halloween.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by cutting a 10� length of amethyst artistic wire with your flush cutters.
  2. Next, watch the video on How to Wire Wrap a Briolette.
  3. Following what you learned in the video, take your wire length and thread it through your ceramic sugar skull bead. Wrap your wire around the top of the bead as seen in the photo. Since this is a messy wire-wrap, you can add as much wire onto your bead as you like. When you get to the point where you are happy with your wrappings, snip off the excess wire using flush cutters. Carefully press the wire end into the wrappings on the backside.
  4. Next, open up the loop on your purple earring hook (how you would a jump ring) and slide it onto the loop from your wire wrapped simple wire loop. Close the earring hook back up.
  5. That�s it!
