Black Cat Earrings

About this design:

I used lava rock, seed beads, and cat ear bead caps to create these simple black cat earrings

The products in this design are listed below.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Begin with a 2" piece of wire and make a loop at the top with round nose pliers.
Step 2:
Slide on the cat ears, an 8mm bead, a 10mm bead, and clamp down a crimp tube to hold the beads in place.
Step 3:
Use pliers to flatten the crimp tube against the bottom of the 10mm bead.
Step 4:
Cut the excess wire so it's about 3/4".
Step 5:
String on seed beads and fold the wire over to hold them in place. Use round nose pliers to gently curl the tail. Attach to an earwire.

    Cute idea for earrings! I could also see making a necklace with the lava rock beads and another cat pendant to go with the earrings or make a bracelet with a smaller cat charm.

    Love black kitties. I’ve had several. They are great Halloween accessories…the ear rings not the kitties.
