December is racing along but it's not too late to make some fabulous Christmas earrings to dress up your festive outfits. Today I have another bonus Christmas Earrings project for you that is NOT in the Twelve Days of Christmas Earrings Vol 5. Watch me as I make these gorgeous White as Snow earrings and then follow the step-by-steps below.
Time to complete: 30 minutes
Degree of Difficulty: easy
Here's what you'll need:
· Two silver head pins
· Two silver eye pins
String the tear drop onto the head pin. Grip the head pin with the chain nose pliers and bend it above the pliers at a 90° angle.
Position the round nose pliers in the neck of the wire and form a loop. Make sure that the wire crosses over the front of the loop.
Wrap the tail of the head pin around the neck two or three times and then trim away the excess.
Open the coils of the bead cage using both hands.
Insert the bead into the cage.
If the bead holes don’t line up with the cage ends, work them around by inserting the tip of the eye pin in one end and manoeuvring it into position. String the caged bead and the star (from the bottom).
Bend the wire above the point of the star at a 90° angle.
Turn a simple loop.
Open the bottom loop of the eye pin and hook it through the wrapped loop.
Attach the earring to the earring wire and close the loop. Make a second earring to match and you're done. Wow....Christmas earrings in under 10 minutes!
You'll find more great earring designs like these in the Twelve Days of Christmas Earrings ebook series. Vol 5 is available for purchase now and can be downloaded immediately after your purchase is complete.
