Retired - Witch's Broom Earrings

PROJECT E3101
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
How cute are these earrings? A Vintaj natural brass woodland branch finding is paired with a light brown premade tassel to mimic a rustic witch's broom.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Using your flush cutters, cut one 4" length of wire.
  2. Thread the wire through the loop of your premade tassel. Watch the video on How to Add a Jump Ring to Premade Tassels for a similar technique.
  3. Slide the tassel onto the center of your wire length and messily wrap the wire around the bottom portion of your branch finding, making sure the tassel is hanging right beneath the the branch. Snip off any excess wire with your flush cutters. See photo for assistance.
  4. Next, cut another 4" length of wire with your flush cutters.
  5. Make a messy wire wrap onto the top portion of your branch finding. See how to do this in our How to Wire Wrap a Briolette video. Snip off any excess wire using your flush cutters.
  6. Open an earring hook (how you would a jump ring) and slide it through the loop of your wrapped wire loop and close.
  7. You're done!
