Starry Ornament Earrings - How to Turn Simple Loops

How quickly December rolls around each year. If you want to get ahead of your Christmas preparations, now is the time to start. These Starry Ornament earrings pack a punch but are quick and simple to make... perfect for the jewellery maker who wants a smart pair of Christmas earrings but doesn't have a lot of crafting time.

Here's what you'll need:
Open the centre of the cage bead and place the miracle bead inside.

Locate the bead hole and use the needle tool to align it with the hole in the cage bead.

String the three star beads on the eye pin, bottoms first, in ascending order.

String a spacer bead, the caged bead and another spacer bead.

Bend the eye pin at a 90° angle just above the spacer bead.

Trim the wire to 10mm (3/8").

Then turn a loop.

String the tear drop on the head pin and turn a simple loop following the images below.

Open the loop of the head pin and attach it to the bottom loop of the eye pin. Hook the top loop of the eye pin onto the earring wire to complete the earring.

Make a second Starry Ornament earring to match and you're ready to rock those Christmas parties!

'Til next time.....
