Wicked Witch of the West Earrings Tutorial
Created by: The Swarovski Design Team @ Create Your Style
Using one head pin, slide on one pearl, one sew-on (coated side up), one artemis cone bead, and one bicone.
Make a simple loop and add ear wire. For step-by-step instructions on making a simple loop, and most secure way to open a jump ring (or any basic round loop), see Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF).
Repeat for other earring.
AccuLoop round-nose pliers have marks on the jaws, making it easy to make the same size loops every time.
Bent chain-nose pliers make it easy to see what you're doing, when opening and closing loops.
Side flush cutters allow you to make flush cuts (smooth, flat cuts) in small spaces.
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are no longer available, so we've moved the whole project into the "Misc Jewelry Tutorials with Issues" area while we decide what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make this project, or retire the tutorial.
