Retired - The Magic of Christmas Earrings

PROJECT E793
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Wonderfully luxe and elegant looking, these earrings featuring dazzling Swarovski crystals and silver filled findings are sure to delight this holiday season. Make a pair for yourself or give as a special gift for a loved one.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Take a head pin and place it through one of the holes in your pave thread ring. You want the pin to go from the outside of the ring through to the inside. Only go through one of the holes.
  2. Place onto the head pin one of each of the following: 4mm cube bead, 12mm margarita bead, 10mm, margarita bead, 8mm margarita bead, 6mm margarita bead, and a 15/0 seed bead.
  3. Carefully slide the head pin into the second hole in the pave thread ring (making sure all your beads stay on the pin). You should now have the "Christmas tree" captured within the thread ring.
  4. Create a wrapped wire loop on the outside of the ring. Snip off excess wire with flush cutters.
  5. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook (the same way you would a jump ring) and slide on the wrapped wire loop from the step above. Close the earring hook loop.
  6. Happy Holidays!
