Christmas Tree Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

The holidays are always in sight at Artbeads.com! We can help you dress up for all of your holiday parties and events with these vibrant Christmas tree earrings.

Step one: On a 2 inch, 22 gauge, sterling silver eye pin, string a 3mm seamless round bead, followed by a silver Kenyan heishi orn spacer bead, a 6mm Swarovski siam crystal cube, another orn spacer, and another 3mm sterling round. Complete the link with a wrapped loop that attaches to the center loop of the antique silver empress link. For detailed instructions on how to make a wrapped loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: At the bottom of the link you just created, open the loop of the eye pin and attach the sterling silver Christmas tree charm.

Step three: For the outside loops, you will make identical dangles. Begin with a 1½ inch, sterling silver, 22 gauge head pin and string a silver Kenyan orn heishi spacer followed by a 6mm Swarovski faceted round emerald bead, and then another orn spacer. Attach the two links to the outside loops of the empress link with wrapped loops.

Step four: Finish the earring by opening the bottom of a French hook earwire with ball and coil and attaching the adorned empress link to it. Close the loop and repeat with the second earring.
