Wire Spiral Christmas Tree Earrings

PROJECT E779
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Show your fun and festive side this holiday season by wearing these easy-to-make Christmas tree earrings. The spiral tree is delightfully playful and the red and gold bicone beads within its core sparkle brilliantly.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Start by watching the video: How to Make Wire Spiral Christmas Tree Earrings.
  2. Based upon what you learned in the video, make your spiral. Set aside.
  3. Place onto a red head pin: one 4mm gold bicone, one 6mm red bicone, one 4mm gold bicone, one 6mm red bicone, one 4mm gold bicone, one 6mm red bicone, and another 4mm gold bicone.
  4. Take your head pin with beads and slip it through the middle of your spiral so that the top part of the spiral rests on the last gold bicone. Create a simple wire loop after the bicone.
  5. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook (the same way you would open a jump ring) and connect it to the simple wire loop you just made. Close the loop.
  6. Happy Holidays!
