Norwegian Spice Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Our red Picasso lentil bead adds a touch of spice to the Nordic feel of the silver pillow bead in this classic earring.

Step one: On a sterling silver 2½-inch head pin thread an antique silver plated pewter 3mm faceted spacer, a 10mm red with light Picasso lentil, another spacer and a sterling silver Bali pillow bead.

Step two: Finish with a wrapped loop. For help making wrapped loops please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Attach the loop onto the sterling silver French hook with ball and coil earwire.

Step three: Repeat the instructions for the other earring.
