Petal Drop Earrings Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
Simple and eye-catching, this earring can be made in minutes, for a very low cost, and will make wonderful gifts. Choose your favorite colors and make enough for your friends and yourself.
Step one: Using the techniques for the wire wrap on a top drilled bead from our Handy Tips section of the Learning Center, attach a 15x6mm Czech glass fuchsia/pink dagger to an eye pin.
Step two: Link the looped end of the same eye pin to another pin and then slide a 1.5mm 2-row hex bead, followed by an 8mm Swarovski bicone white opal crystal and another hex bead, onto the pin.
Step three: Finish with a wrapped loop, remember to attach the earwire before completing your loop.
Step four: For extra security always add an inexpensive clear rubber earwire clutch to all your finished earrings in which you use earwires. At their low cost, it is a good idea to stock up on those ahead of time.
