Don't forget to double these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings
  1. Place onto a head pin: 1 Austrian crystal crystal 3mm bicone, 1 Austrian crystal round mini bead in crystal, and another bicone. Create a simple wire loop after the last bead and trim excess wire with flush cutters. Make a total of 3 of these dangles.
  2. Look at your antique silver plate snowflake stamping and attach the 3 dangles from above to the 3 side holes in the snowflake. Just open up their simple loops the same way you would open a jump ring and connect it through the hole, then close the loop up.
  3. Carefully snip the head off of a head pin (cut as little actual wire as possible). Create a simple wire loop on one end of your wire, place an Austrian crystal round mini bead in crystal onto the wire, and then create a simple wire loop after the bead.
  4. Open one of the loops and slip it through the top hole on your snowflake stamping. Close the loop. Connect your earring finding to the other loop.
  5. Happy Holidays!
