Retired - Christmas Wrappings Tree Earrings

PROJECT E776
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
These earrings are wonderfully festive yet elegant at the same time. A cultured sea glass triangle has been wire wrapped to become a fun and modern Christmas tree.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. To wire wrap your cultured sea glass triangle, please watch the video: How to Make a Wire Wrapped Christmas Tree with Sea Glass Triangles.
  2. Following what you learned in the video, wire wrap your cultured sea glass triangle in the style shown with the gold wire.
  3. Place a gold filigree bead onto a head pin. Create a simple wire loop after the bead and cut off excess wire with flush cutters.
  4. Open the simple wire loop that you just made and connect it to the wire loop at the base of your "tree". Close the loop.
  5. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook (the same way you would open a jump ring) and connect this to the top loop on your "tree".
  6. Happy Holidays!
