Space Oddity

About this design:

Sweet little space ships heading to some far off star! These are easy peasy and ready to wear in a hot minute! I saw the Amoracast Sterling Rocket Charms and just knew they had to head for Saturn, hence the UFO beads.

Components:

Sterling silver Czech Glass Cobalt Seas Picasso UFO 7x9mm,Sterling Silver Eye Pin 1", 22 gauge or 24 gauge, don't remember, Amoracast Sterling Silver Rocket Charm 7x13mm,

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Attach the cute little rocket to the eye pin, first. You could wait but it seemed faster to me to do it this way.
Step 2:
Add the UFO bead next.
Step 3:
Form a loop to attach to the ear wire. Make sure that the loop is situated to drop the charm hanging in front of the ear, mine is looped perpendicular to the bottom loop. I cheated and used the 1 step looper pliers.
  Step 4:
Attach the dangle with the bead and the charm to the ear wire. And, tada! They are ready to wear!

    Thank you everyone! I made some for a “spacey” friend and she loved them. Not all of the UFO beads work with the sterling. I liked these the best.
