On the 5th Day of Christmas - Snow in Forest Earrings

Snow in the Forest

2 – 10mm Erinite Swarovski 3700 margarita beads
2 - 8mm Emerald Swarovski 3700 margarita beads
2 – 6mm Peridot 5305 spacer beads
2 - 4mm Siam 5301/5328 bicone beads
2 - sterling silver snowflakes
2 - sterling silver ear wires
2 – 3” pieces of sterling silver 22ga wire

(all beads available at ArtBeads.com)

1. Make a wrapped loop.

2. Stack the Siam bead, then the 6mm, 8mm and 10mm green beads.

3. Make another wrapped loop, capturing the loop in the snowflake charm.

4. Open and close the loop in the ear wire, capturing the loop above the Siam bead.

It's that easy!

Note from the Editor: Lori's project would also look awesome using a pair of silver snowflake charms from Hint.
