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. Use pliers to remove the jump ring that came with your wing charm (you can save this to use for a future project).
  1. Begin by opening the loop on one eye pin, and slide on the uppermost opening of your wing charm. Close the loop.
  2. Onto the eye pin, slide one 5mm Austrian Crystal bead. Above the bead, make a simple wire loop.
  3. Open the loop on another eye pin, and slide on your simple wire loop from the previous step. Close the loop. Then repeat step 2 to attach your second crystal bead.
  4. Repeat step 3 to add your third crystal bead.
  5. To hang your earring: Open the loop on your earring post, and slide on your simple wire loop from step 4. Close the loop.
  6. Enjoy your earrings!
