Cinnamon and Sugar Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

The beautiful Venetian beads have the look of spun sugar with flecks of warm copper and gold running through for a pinch of spice. These earrings are sure to spice up any fall wardrobe.

Step one: On a 2½-inch sterling silver head pin thread a gold plated pewter Kenyan heishi spacer, an antique copper 5mm coiled spacer, a copper-plated pewter knot work bead cap, a Venetian glass 10mm luna crystal round, another copper spacer and another gold plated pewter Kenyan heishi spacer.

Step two: Finish with a wrapped loop. For help making wrapped loops, please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Connect the loop to the sterling silver with gold-filled ball earwire. Repeat the instructions to make the other earring.
