Retired - The Little Gingerbread Man Earrings

PROJECT E3014
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
These cute little earrings pair ceramic Gingerbread Man beads with red seed beads and gold plated findings. This is a fun, playful touch for the holiday season!
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by looking through your seed bead mix and pick out two of the lighter red seed beads.
  2. Take a head pin and slide on one red seed bead, followed by your Gingerbread Man ceramic bead and then another red seed bead.
  3. Once your beads are on, create a simple wire loop using your round nose pliers. Cut off any excess wire with your flush cutters.
  4. Open the loop on your earring hook (the same way you would a jump ring) and slide on the loop from your simple wire loop. Close the loop with your pliers.
  5. Your earring is ready.
