Things Needed:

  • 24 gauge craft wire
  • clear seed beads
  • 12 Swarovski bicone beads (4 mM) in color of choice (I used sapphire)
  • 12 Swarovski bicone beads (4 mM) in a lighter color of choice (I used light sapphire)
  • jewerly pliers
  • 2 fish hook earrings

1. Begin by cutting 6 lengths (3 for each earring) of wire to about 4 inches long. Twist these together in the center, very well. The easiest way to do this is to hold them together with the pliers, then use another set of jewelry pliers to twist. Once twisted, spread out the arms of the wires to form a snowflake shape. Pinch the center well with the pliers and make sure each arm isn't wobbly. If they are, twist them a few more times to make them nice and secure.

2. On one of the arms, thread on a clear seed bead, followed by a darker color Swarovski crystal, then another seed bead, then the lighter Swarovski crystal, and end with another clear seed bead.

3. Secure the end of the wire by first clipping it close to the end with the wire cutters, then make a little loop at the end with the jewelry pliers. Repeat this for all the arms of the snowflake.
