About this design:

I love the glowing blue green of the Czch glass teardrops, I wanted to surround them with something sparkly so I chose tiny Rhodolite beads. They have an elegant look.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need 22 & 24 gauge wire, 2 Czech glass teardrops, ear posts, and 2mm garnet faceted rounds.


Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut 6" of your 22 gauge wire and feed it through the teardrop. Leave one tail up so it can be your loop at the end. Take the other tail and wrap around the teardrop several times and trim. Now cut a 8-9" piece of 24 gauge wire and start wrapping it around the 22 gauge wire on the teardrop. Start stringing your garnet beads on to the wire and wrap them around the bail. Wrap enough beads around so it looks full, then trim your wire. A little glue on the wire ends will help them stay down.
  Step 2:
Create a loop on the top with the wire we left at the top. Wrap the excess around the base of the loop tightly to finish. Follow the tip below for help.
  Step 3:
Attach the finished teardrop to the ear wire and wear!

    The garnets look great with the green opal teardrops. The gold is just right for this design.
