6 gold-filled headpins (1.5 inches long)
2 6mm round Swarovski crystals in Turquoise
4 gold-filled saucer beads
2 gold-filled ear wires
Jeweler's pliers (one or two pairs, depending on your preference)
1. This pair of earrings is a bit different in that we'll use different lengths of headpins. Slide a Swarovski onto a headpin. With the tips of your pliers, make a 90 degree bend in the headpin just under 1/2 of an inch from the end of the tail. Repeat for the other headpin.
2. Line up two headpins and cut them about 1/8 inch from the tip of the tail. Add a gold bead to each headpin.
3. Line up the remaining two headpins and cut them about 1/4 inch from the tip of the tail. Add a gold bead to each headpin.
4. Go ahead and make your 90 degree bends in the remaining headpins. A quick way to do this is to line up two same-sized headpins and make a 90 degree bend in both at the same time.
I hope you like this earring style! Let me know what you think in the comments and what metals and colors you would try it in.
