Celebration Earrings by Jamie Hogsett

Need a pair of earrings to help you ring in the new year? These Celebration Earrings will feel festive all night long! Inspired by confetti and streamers, the earrings are surprisingly quick to make.

Materials:
2 clear 9x12mm Czech glass beads

Tools:
Cutters
Nylon Jaw Pliers
Flat Nose Pliers
Chain Nose Pliers
Round Nose Pliers

Finished size: 2"

Start with 7 pieces of wire per earring. Two pieces measuring 2 1/2", two pieces at 2 3/4", and one piece each at 3", 4 1/2", and 6".


Use the 6" wire to wrap around the center of the five shortest wires for about 3/8". Fan out the five wires, with the shortest wires closest to the center wrap and the longest wire staying straight. Use the trips of the round nose pliers to curl the very ends of all the wire ends except for the top center wire.



Use chain nose pliers to continue spiraling the wire ends by holding the start of each spiral flat between the tips of the pliers. Form a wire wrapped loop. Use the remaining wire to string the glass bead to the center of the wire. Wrap the wire around the other wires to secure the bead. Turn all the spiral ends up toward the glass bead. Trim wire ends and attach to the ear wire. Repeat to make a second earring.


Enjoy! Happy New Year to you all!
