I just loved making these pretty rose themed dangle earrings, but my favorite part was creating a themed and functional flower vase earring card holder for this gift. I got to finally use some long lost card making supplies to create an earring card holder in a floral theme to mimic the earrings. I learned many new techniques such as using embossing powder and watercoloring with Crayola markers.
For these dangle earrings you will need:
- 2 two – three inch head pins
- 2 rose themed beads (I purchased at Michaels)
- 2-4 bicones or rondelles, size 4 – 6 mm
- 4 metal disk spacers, size 2-4 mm
- 2 French style/ fish hook ear wires
- round nose pliers
- bent nose pliers
- flat nose pliers
- nipper tool/ flush cutters
These earrings are ultra simple to make once you get the hang of the various tools and using your wrist to re-position as you either create a simple loop or a wrapped wire loop. I prefer the wire wrapped loops because they are more secure, more snug to the beads and offer a lovely spiral/ circular design element in the wrap. You can extend your wrapped loops to create a bead cap scenario if desired, but I would suggest only doing that for large beads over the size 18 mm.
