Free DIY Beaded Earring Idea by Jamie Hogsett10:19 AM
Colorado is beautiful all year around, especially in the fall. Every time I look to the west this time of year, I see snow capped mountains with patches of bright orange and red leaves below. It's gorgeous! And it's the inspiration for these dangling earrings.
The earrings are easy to make with basic wire wrapping techniques. Here's are the materials and tools you'll need to make your own pair:
6 crystal copper 2mm Swarovski crystal rounds
6 Siam 2mm Swarovski crystal rounds
2 white 7x4mm Czech pressed-glass square beads
2 red-and-orange Czech fire-polished rondelles
2 white 10x9mm Czech pressed-glass flowers
1 pair of copper ear wires
6 copper 24-gauge head pins
14" of copper 22-gauge Craft Wire
Chain Nose Pliers
Round Nose Pliers
The crystals are available from Fusionbeads.com. All other materials available from Soft Flex Company. Enjoy!
