Retired - Crystal Drop Earrings

PROJECT E3009
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
These gorgeous vintage Lucite earrings dangle with elegance. The large earring hooks add extra drama to this sparkly piece and make the whole look stand out. This is a quick and easy project that only incorporates three components!
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by taking your head pin and sliding it through your Lucite bead.
  2. Once your bead is on, create a simple wire loop using your pliers. Cut off any excess wire using your flush cutters.
  3. Unhook your silver plated earring hook wire and slide it through your simple wire loop, leaving your Lucite bead resting at the bottom of your earring hook wire. Close up the hook.
  4. That's it!
