FREE Friday Afternoon Project - Razzle Dazzle Earrings

Relaxing on a Friday afternoon......How about a DIY earring project?!  FREE!

Super easy and very elegant, these Razzle Dazzle Earrings were created with the Jewelry Class in a Box in Shimmer available from Prima Bead.

It's a very easy project for the beginner.  The earrings take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete, and you don't need any special tools.  The tool in the kit will work just fine for this project.

Materials from Kit:
22 bugle beads
4 bicones
6 large rondelle beads
8 headpins
2 ear wires
2 jump rings

3-In-One from Kit

Skills Needed:
Jump Rings
Forming Loops

Begin by making all the dangles first.  Slide the beads onto head pins and form a loop. You will need two bicone dangles (see photo on left), four glass rondelle and bugle bead dangles (see photo on right), and two rondelle/bugle/bicone dangles (see photo below)

Open a jump ring and slide on one of the short rondelle dangles, one of the long rondelle dangles, one more short rondelle dangle and an ear wire.  Close jump ring. (See photo below.)

Next, attach the bicone dangle to the loop at the bottom of the ear wire. (See photo on right.)

Enjoy your earrings.
