Let It Snow Earrings


About this design:

By Tracy Gonzales - Oh the weather outside is frightful, but these earrings are so delightful!

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • 2 6” Pieces 22g Craft Wire
  • 2 TierraCast Snowflake Charms
  • 2 TierraCast Gold-Filled 3mm Bead Earwire
  • 2 5mm Round Jumpring
  • 34 Silver & Clear Crystal Faceted Rondelle 3mm
  • 14 Silver & Clear Crystal Faceted Rondelle 4mm
  • 4 10mm Pearly White Freshwater Pearl Nuggets
  • 2 Rock Crystal Faceted Teardrops
  • Hand-Dyed Silk Ribbon
  • 1 1/8” Mandrel

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
String three 4mm rondelles and six 3mm rondelles onto a piece of craft wire in a random pattern. Then string on 1 pearl nugget, one 3mm rondelle, one 4mm rondelle, 1 faceted teardrop, one 4mm rondelle, one 3mm rondelle, and 1 pearl nugget. Follow with two 4mm rondelles and eight 3mm rondelles in a random pattern.
Step 2:
Wrap the beaded wire carefully around the 1 1/8” mandrel to curve it into a circle. Twist the ends of the wire together at the top, forming a wrapped loop. Trim excess. Thread 1 open 5mm (ID) round jumpring through the wrapped loop, attaching a snowflake charm before closing so that the charm hangs inside the beaded loop. Attach an earwire to the wrapped loop.
