Designer: Sarah Diamond
Skill Level: Beginner
Little blown glass ornaments for your ears! Show everyone your holiday spirit, with hip extra long kidney-wires and and red, green and gold color story.
Instructions
Follow the instructions below twice, to make two earrings.Take one headpin and place the following items on it, from bottom to top: 1 delicate flower bead capone lampwork beadone cone flower bead cap (large side down).Make a wrapped wire loop no more than 4mm in diameter snugly at the top of the cone bead cap and trim excess wire. Use chain nose pliers to tuck in the end of the wire. Hang your miniature ornament from your kidney wire. We also carry 1 1/2 inch kidney wires if you want a slightly shorter one.In our example we have slightly bent back the little tail of the kidney wire below the catch of the earring for better security of the earring. You may also want to pinch closed the loop of the earring from which your ornament hangs for additional securing of the dangle.It doesn't have to be about the holidays! Use any one of our 13mm blown glass beads and bead caps with kidney wires in silver plate, gold plate, and vintaj brass to create earrings in a variety of colors.
