Here's what you'll need to make these:
- 6 6x4mm Ruby Red Czech Glass Teardrop Beads
- 2 8x4mm red Czech glass top drilled teardrops
- 6 silver twisted curved connectors
- 8 4mm silver jump rings
- 1.6m (approximately 64") 28-Gauge Tarnish Resistant Silver Wire
- 2 silver earring wires
- round nose pliers, chain nose pliers, flush cutters
Wrap the short tail twice around the neck just created on the long wire.
Trim away the excess wire on the short tail.
Create a loop with the round nose pliers just above the coil.
Wrap the wire down around the neck and over the wraps made with the short wire.
Continue wrapping the wire around the bead until you cover the holes. Pass the wire diagonally across the wrapping on the bead and then twice around the neck wraps to secure it.
Trim the excess wire. Create two more 6x4mm wrapped beads and one 8x4mm wrapped bead.
Open a jump ring and attach two curved connectors (string the outward curve first) and then one of the small wrapped teardrops so that it sits on the inside curve. Add a third connector and a teardrop. Attach the third teardrop to the top connector with a jump ring.
Add the large teardrop to the bottom connector with a jump ring.
Now attach the top jump ring to the earring wire and then create a second earring to match.
I'll have one more design to round out this year's Twelve Days of Christmas Earrings Extravaganza so don't forget to check back to see what I come up with.
