Awareness Ribbon Earrings Project

Be the first to review
Part Number:PROJ-03721

I found the pattern for these earrings in a newsletter I subscribe to and thought I would give them a try. I used different tools, which makes them much easier to make. You can change the bead color to support your cause! .

1. Cut 2 pieces of wire 2” in length and use your fingers to loop each of them so that they resemble a ribbon with one end slightly longer than the other.

2. Place them on an anvil or smooth surface and strike them with a hammer until they are flat, thus fusing the cross wire together.

3. Drop a round crystal on a head pin and wrap a small loop.

4. On the longer tail using the round nose pliers, bend a small loop back and place the drop on it and close.

5. Repeat steps 3-4 for the other ribbon.

6. To complete the pair, place the ribbons on ear wires at the loop.
