When I first saw these Czech glass melon teardrops, my first thought was that they would be perfect for earrings. I paired them with gemstones & bead caps to create a few different looks.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Czech glass melon teardrops
  • Czech glass hibiscus coins
  • Czech glass gold spacers
  • Headpins
  • Earwires
  • Jump rings
  • Gold 24 gauge wire
  • Bead caps
  • Freshwater potato pearls
  • Seed beads
  • Rock crystal faceted 3mm rounds
  • Amazonite tumbled nuggets

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

Begin by making a bead link with the 24 gauge gold wire- Slide on a bead cap, the Czech glass melon, a gold Bali spacer, and a purple seed bead. Next, use a headpin to make a bead charm- slide on a small gold seed bead and a Czech glass 7mm hibiscus coin. Attach the charm directly to the bottom of the bead link. To finish, slide the top loop of the bead link onto an earwire.
