These earrings are absolutely delicious! Swarovski crystals are embellished with red and white Miyuki seed beads and dangled from twisting silver filled earring findings. These earrings will give your earlobes a real sweet treat!

  1. Cut a piece of Supplemax measuring about 24". Run the Supplemax through a crystal so you have a tail of about 4".
  2. String 8 red seed beads on the long portion of the Supplemax. Run the Supplemax back up through the bead.
  3. Repeat step 2 three more times so you have a total of 4 red stripes on the crystal bead.
  4. String 8 white seed beads on the long portion of the Supplemax. Run the Supplemax back up through the bead.
  5. Repeat step 4 three more times so you have a total of 4 white stripes. Make sure your red and white stripes alternate.
  6. Run the Supplemax through one of the seed bead sections so it meets the tail on the other side. Tie a square knot. Apply a dab of Hypo Cement.
  7. Run your threads through a few nearby seed beads. Cut excess thread.
  8. On a headpin, pick up a red seed bead, your beaded bead and another red seed bead. Make a loop. Attach it to one end of the earring finding. Wrap the wire and trim the excess.
  9. Open the loop on an ear wire. Attach the other end of the earring finding to the loop on the ear wire. Close the loop.
  10. Repeat this process to complete the pair.
