Twelve Days of Christmas - Day 4


Today, I've picked out a couple of cane glass beads from my collection to turn into Christmas Lanterns.


To make a pair of these earrings, you'll need the following supplies:
Begin by threading on all the beads onto the eye pin in the order shown in the photo above, except for the seed bead and teardrop crystal . Turn a loop at the top.

Thread the seed bead and teardrop on the headpin. Leave a 2-3mm gap above the bead and bend the head pin at a 45° angle .

Form a loop with the round nose pliers.

Hook it onto the bottom of the lantern component and create a wrapped loop. Trim the excess.


Connect the earring wire to the lantern with the jump ring.  

Use the remaining beads and findings to create a matching lantern earring.

Check back again tomorrow for the next Christmas earring tutorial.

'Til then......
