Don't forget to double these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Happy Holidays!
