Retired - A Very Modern Christmas Earrings

PROJECT E778
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Create a pair of modern wire Christmas tree earrings this holiday season using some colorful wire and a Wig Jig! With the ingredients in this project, you can actually make 5 complete pairs of earrings.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. To make this earring, please watch the video: How to Make a Wig Jig Christmas Tree.
  2. Based upon what you learned in the video, make your wire Christmas tree. Set aside.
  3. Place one gold bicone onto a head pin. Create a simple wire loop after the bead.
  4. Open the simple wire loop you just made (the same way you would open a jump ring) and link this onto the bottom loop on your wire tree. Close the loop.
  5. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook and connect it to the top loop on your wire tree. Close the loop.
  6. Happy Holidays!
