Retired - Night in the Graveyard Earrings

PROJECT E766
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Create a positively spooky pair of earrings using realistic looking ceramic skull beads and TierraCast tombstone charms. Make these as long or short as you want.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Place one skull bead onto an eye pin. Create a simple wire loop after the bead and snip off excess wire with flush cutters.
  2. Place one 6mm Preciosa Czech Crystal black diamond bicone onto an eye pin. Create a simple wire loop after the bead and snip off excess wire with flush cutters.
  3. Place one 4mm Preciosa Czech Crystal jet hematite bicone onto an eye pin. Create a simple wire loop after the bead and snip off excess wire with flush cutters.
  4. It's time to connect al your piece together.
  5. Open the simple wire loop at the base of the skull bead (the same way you would open a jump ring) and link this onto the loop at the top of your tombstone charm. Close the loop.
  6. Open the loop at the top of the skull bead and connect this to one of the loops on one side of the 6mm bicone bead. Close the loop. On the other side, link the 4mm bicone bead segment.
  7. Open the loop at the top of the 4mm bicone bead segment and connect this to the loop at the base of your ball post earring. Close the loop.
  8. Attach the earring back to your post earring.
  9. All done!
