2 sterling silver ear wires
2 sterling silver components (these, sadly, seem to be discontinued)
8 sterling silver headpins (2 inch)
8 Round Swarovski crystals in Montana (4 mm)
Jeweler's pliers (one or two pairs, depending on your preference)
1. Slide a Swarovski onto a headpin.
2. With the tips of your pliers, make a 90 degree bend in the headpin just above the bead. Repeat for the other seven headpins.
5. Now you'll make your loops. Line the very end of a headpin up with the mark on your pliers. Make sure the mark is facing up and clamp the pliers around the end of the headpin—hold the rest of the wire tightly with your other hand. Hold the pliers tightly and "roll" them toward you to make a loop. You will notice that you can only roll them so far before you have to stop. Readjust your hands on the pliers and make sure the pliers are snug in the loop you've started. Finish rolling the pliers toward you. Repeat for the remaining headpins.
Its kind of sad that I can't find these in sterling silver, but I do see them available in gold. I have one more set left and almost don't want to use them yet! Do you hold onto supplies too?
