Retired - Home For Christmas Earrings

PROJECT E131
Designer: Sarah Diamond
Skill Level: Beginner
SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Christmas tree earrings aren't new, it's true, but most are only three tiered due to limited bead sizes. Go one bigger because we have 4 sizes of margarita beads in peridot and peridot AB!
Instructions
Follow the instructions below twice to make two earrings.Take one head pin, and stack beads on it in the following order, starting from the bottom: One 4mm crystal Cube, one 12mm Margarita, one 10mm Margarita, one 8mm Margarita, one 6mm Margarita and one 3mm crystal bicone.If you are using Peridot with the AB finish, we suggest turning the Margaritas so that the AB side is facing up. This creates a very pretty effect.Using the wrapped loop technique, create a closed loop at the top of the headpin, no more than 4mm in diameter. Hang the finished tree from an earring hook.When making your second earring, make sure the wrapped loop is the same size as the loop on the first tree, or your earrings will be different lengths.Want your tree to be even taller? Try stacking a second 10mm margarita bead above the first in the tree, and possibly doubling up the 8mm margarita to get even more height.Use standard peridot margarita beads if you prefer these earrings without the AB finish. Also try this in different colors with our wide assortment of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Margarita Beads. See examples in our Feliz Navidad Christmas Tree Earrings and the Rockefeller Crystal Christmas Tree Earrings.
