Product Description:

Winter Candy Earrings 

My favorite color combination for Winter 2011.  These go great with the Winter Candy Necklace

Kelly McCoy, Auntie’s Beads Designer

Instructions:

1. On five separate gunmetal headpins, place: a) one fuchsia round, b) one metallic blue bicone, c) one fuchsia round followed by a jet bicone, d) one metallic blue bicone and e) one fuchsia round. 
2.  Above each bead (or pair of beads), use your wire looping pliers to make a small loop.  Trim the extra wire off with your nipper tool.
3.  Use your chain nose pliers to carefully open each of the loops you made in step (2) and dangle them from the loops of the gunmetal filigree finding in the order listed in step (1). 
4.  Use your chain nose pliers to carefully open the eye of a gunmetal french wire with 2mm ball and hang your beaded gunmetal filigree finding from it.  Carefully close the eye and repeat all steps for a matching earring!
 
 
 Materials and Tools Needed:

Gunmetal Filigree Open Finding with 5 Loops, 25mm (2)
Gunmetal French Wires with 2mm Ball, Bag of 10 (1)
Swarovski Crystal Round Bead, 6mm, Fuchsia (6)
    
     Chinese Crystal 8mm Bicone Strand, Metallic Blue (1)
     Chinese Crystal 8mm Bicone Strand, Jet (1)      
          -Hesitant to buy two entire strands just to make a pair of earrings?  May I suggest making the Winter Candy Necklace, which uses both of these strands as well, to match.  One strand of each color provides enough beads to make two sets (two necklaces and two pairs of earrings) if you so wish!
