I love the rich look of the color mustard, so I knew I had to use these dagger beads in something special. Wear these earrings with denim for a casual boho look!
It's always fun to create dangling looks within earring designs. They add movement and fun to your style. Cheri used Czech glass dagger beads and fire-polished beads in fun colors to create dangles for these earrings. She used beading thread to create a more organic look for each dangle. Switch up the bead colors to create a new take on this design.
Knot the center of a length of thread approximately one foot long to a TierraCast brass oxide brass small oval open jump ring. With a needle on one half, thread a 2mm fire-polished bead in rose gold topaz luster and a Czech glass 10x4mm opaque mustard orange small dagger bead onto the thread. Then, go back through the fire-polished bead. Snug the beads up to the jump ring and knot the two threads together between the jump ring and the fire-polished bead.
Thread the needle through the fire-polished bead. Move the needle to the other half of the thread, but do not trim the first thread yet. Go through the fire-polished bead and the dagger and then back through the fire-polished bead. Go through the jump ring. Repeat this loop one more time and then knot the thread between the fire-polished bead and the jump ring. Thread through the fire-polished bead. Trim both threads.
Repeat steps one and two four times for a total of five dangles.
Attach a dangle to each of the five loops at the bottom of the antique brass-plated small ribbed pendant.
Cut a length of antique brass-plated flat oval cable chain approximately seven links long. Attach it to the loop on one side of the crescent pendant using an oval jump ring. Repeat on the other side of the pendant.
Attach the antique brass-plated earring post with ring to both chain lengths using an oval jump ring.
Repeat steps one through six to make the other earring.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown

the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
