Instructions

Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. First, please watch our video on how to make a beaded bead using right angle weave. Following the technique shown in the video, make a beaded bead using 30 blue Austrian crystal crystal bicones, four feet of Fireline and two big eye needles. Set aside.
  2. Take one silver eye pin and open the loop, the same way you would open a jump ring. Slide it through the jump ring that comes attached to one sterling silver dreidel charm. Close the loop.
  3. String your beaded bead, followed by one sterling silver round bead, onto the eye pin. Then make a simple wire loop as close to the bead as you can, so the beaded bead and silver bead are nice and snug on the eye pin.
  4. Open the loop of one earring wire. Slide on the wire loop of the eye pin from the previous step. Close the loop.
  5. Enjoy your earrings!
