Petunia Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Fun and flirty, these earrings have a subtle floral motif enhanced by a rich color palette. Wear them to accent your favorite sundress this summer, and as the weather becomes cooler, they'll become one of your favorite accessories with your sweaters this fall.

Step One: On a 2 1/2-inch head pin, string an 8mm antique silver leaf bead cap, a 12mm Swarovski Artemis bead in dark indigo, a bead cap, a Czech glass small bell flower in cranberry and a 4mm round pearl in white. Finish with a wrapped loop. For help with wrapped loops visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Trim any excess wire. Attach the loop to the French hook earwire with ball and coil.

Step Two: Repeat step one to create the second earring.
