Designer Tips

  • Attach the eye pin loop to the crystal pear charm (twist loop open and closed).
  • String on beads in the following order:
     3mm silver-plated heishi bead,
    4mm bicone bead,
     3mm silver-plated heishi bead,
    4mm bicone bead,
     3mm silver-plated heishi bead,
    6mm bicone bead,
     3mm silver-heishi bead.
  • Form the start of a wrapped loop at the unfinished end of the beaded eye pin.
  • Prior to wrapping the loop, attach the beaded head pin to the loop of the post earring. Finish wrapping the loop.
  • Add the earring back to the post.
  • Repeat to make the second earring.

Suggested Supplies

The pear-shaped crystal and glue-in setting originally used in this project are no longer available. However, we have lots of other crystal pear charms and pear-shaped drops! For some, you may need an extra jump ring to connect the drop to the eye pin. (The silver-plated jump ring mix is a great option.)
