Retired - Broom of Bones Earrings

PROJECT E7040
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
These cute Halloween earrings, featuring TierraCast bone-shaped connectors and a black handmade tassel, look like whimsical witch's brooms gently brushing your shoulders.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. To begin, please watch our video on how to make a handmade tassel. Make a tassel using the black pearl cotton and one 6mm jump ring (I made mine slightly smaller than the one shown in the video, using fewer thread wraps). Set it aside.
  2. Take 2 TierraCast bone-shaped connector beads and line them up. Open a 5mm jump ring using pliers and slide it through the loops on the ends of both bone-shaped connectors, connecting them. Close the jump ring.
  3. Open another 5mm jump ring. Slide it through the loop on the other end of one bone-shaped connector and also slide on the 6mm jump ring at the top of your tassel. Close the jump ring.
  4. Take one earring hook and open the loop the same way you would open a jump ring. Slide on the loop at the top of your bone connector-and-tassel component. Close the loop.
  5. Enjoy your earrings!
You can use just one bone-shaped connector bead instead of two per earring to make a shorter pair of earrings.
