To make this pair of earrings, here's what you'll need:
- 2 wooden bell shaped bead caps
- 2 brass coloured bow charms
- 6 5mm Silver Star Beads
- 6 silver seed beads
- 2 small silver bead caps
- 10 x 4mm silver jump rings
- 2 x 6mm silver jump rings
- 2 silver eye pins
- 6 silver head pins
- fine silver chain
- tools: chain nose pliers, round nose pliers, flush cutters
Wrap the wire around the necks of the head pins to secure the stars in place.
Open a jump ring and thread on the chains and attach to the eye pin.
Thread the bell and bead cap on the eye pin. Leave a 2-3mm (1/8") gap above the bead cap and bend the eye pin at a 45° angle. Turn a loop, wrap the tail of the eye pin around the neck and trim away the excess.
Attach a jump ring to the bow and one to the wrapped loop. Open the 6mm jump ring and attach the bell and the bow together. Before closing it, add the earring wire.
Create a matching earring using the remaining components.
We're almost at the half way mark so join me again next week as I share more earring projects with you.
Have a great weekend!
