Bead caps can make simple designs look intricate and complex. Cynthia added beautiful TierraCast bead caps over Swarovski bicones for dangling earrings that sparkle and shine. Use your favorite colors of bicones to make this design your own. See more ideas for adding bead caps to your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Slide a Swarovski 8mm XILION bicone in Capri Blue onto a 3-inch 22 gauge sterling silver head pin, followed by a TierraCast antique silver Jasmine Bead cap nested over the bicone and another bead cap facing the other way. Slide on another bicone and a bead cap. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
