Product Description:
Cascading Czech glass mixed bicones fade from dark to light, giving the illusion of snow falling from the sky. A pewter silver snowflake charms hangs beneath the cluster of glass beads to create a pair of earrings that is perfect for the holiday season!

Shanna Steele, Aunties Beads Designer

Instructions:


In this project, you will be using mixes. I advise that you lay yours out before you begin. You may or may not have the exact same colors I do, so you want to have an idea of what you are working with in mind before you begin. I used the following (per earring):
  1. 2 crystal AB 6mm
  2. 2 crystal AB 4mm
  3. 2 white opal 6mm
  4. 2 white opal 4mm
  5. 2 medium grey 6mm
  6. 2 medium grey 4mm
  7. 2 dark grey 6mm
  8. 2 dark grey 4mm
  1. Cut a piece of chain that has 8 links.
  2. On a headpin, pick up a 6mm crystal ab bicone. Make a simple loop. Attach it to an end link on the piece of chain.
  3. Repeat step 2, adding the drop to the same link as the other 6mm bicone.
  4. On a headpin, pick up a 4mm crystal ab bicone. Make a simple loop. Attach it to the link above the link used in steps 2 and 3.
  5. Repeat step 4, attaching the drop to the opposite side of the link as the drop just added.
  6. On a headpin, pick up a 6mm white opal bicone. Make a simple loop. Attach it to the link above the link used in steps 4 and 5.
  7. Repeat step 6, attaching the drop to the opposite side of the link as the drop just added.
  8. On a headpin, pick up a 6mm medium grey bicone. Make a simple loop. Attach it to the link above the link used in steps 6 and 7.
  9. Repeat step 8, attaching the drop to the opposite side of the link as the drop just added.
  10. On a headpin, pick up a 6mm dark grey bicone. Make a simple loop. Attach it to the link above the link used in steps 8 and 9.
  11. Repeat step 10, attaching the drop to the opposite side of the link as the drop just added.
  12. On a headpin, pick up a 4mm dark grey bicone. Make a simple loop. Attach it to the last open link of chain.
  13. Repeat step 12.
  14. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the link containing the 2 crystal ab 6mm bicones, making sure you attach the link between the bicones for balance. Attach the jump ring to the snowflake charm. Close the jump ring.
  15. Open the loop on an ear wire. Attach it to the link containing the 2 dark grey 4mm bicones. Make sure you attach the loop between the 2 beads so there is balance. Close the loop.
  16. Repeat steps 1 through 15 to complete the pair.
