This year's designs use filigrees, wire wrapping and even leather, along with a variety of construction methods to satisfy both the beginner and more advanced jewellery maker. There are Christmas trees, snow flakes, ornaments and stars. There is even a snowglobe-style design in this year's collection - something for every celebration that you're likely to attend.

Here's what you'll need to make the Modern Splendour Christmas Tree Earrings:

String the beads on the head pin in the order shown.

Grip the head pin as close to the star bead as you can and turn a 90° angle above the pliers.

Wrap the wire around the top jaw of the round nose pliers as far as you can and then remove it and place it on the bottom jaw as show in the photo.

Continue bending the wire around the jaw until you have formed a complete loop. The tail end should cross over the front of the neck.

Grip the tail end with the chain nose pliers and wrap it neatly around the neck until all the slack has been taken up on the head pin.

Trim the wire as close to the neck as you can.

Slip the loop onto the earring wire.

To close it, press the ball against the earring wire, letting it go slightly off centre and past the wire.

Use pliers to pull it back into alignment with the earring wire and the gap will be fully closed.

Make a matching earring with the remaining components.
