Twelve Days of Christmas - Day 2 - Bud Light Earrings

Keep your Christmas spirits bright this Christmas with a fun pair of bud light earrings.
Bud light Christmas earrings made with teardrop crystals and chain.

For this project you'll need:
Jewelry components for making Bud light earrings: green, red and clear teardrop crystals, silver chain and jewelry findings.

Thread a crystal onto each head pin followed by 4 daisy spacers. Bend the head pins at a 45° angle
Green, red and clear teardrop crystal strung on 3 silver head pins with daisy spacers to create bud lights.

Trim the head pins to about 10mm (3/8").
The head pins on the teardrop crystal components trimmed to 10mm ready to turn a simple loop.

Turn a simple loop on each one.
Red, green and clear budlight components with simple loops,ready for stringing on chain.

Cut 3 varying lengths of chain for each earring. Open the loops of the bud light components and hook them onto the chains. Open the jump ring and thread each chain onto it and then attach it to the earring wire.
Varying lengths of fine silver chain are attached to the red, green and clear bud light components.

Make a second earring to match and you're done. Now you're set to twinkle your way through Christmas!

Check back later in the week for Day 3's Christmas earrings.

'Til next time.....
