Love is… a pair of handmade crystal angel earrings for a girlfriend.
2 long metal pins with eye
3 small pastel-colored glass crystals or other beads.
2 angel charms
2 earring findings
How to Make Angel Earrings
1. Open the loops at the ends of the pins a tiny bit to attach the angel charms and then close them again.
2. String the three crystals onto the pins and make a loop on the end using round-nosed jewelry pliers. If your pins are too long, you may have to use a pair of cutting jewelry pliers to trim a bit off before making the loop.
3. With same round-nosed jewelry pliers, open each earring finding a tiny bit so that a string of beads can be attached to each finding. Close the finding again and you’re done.
I spent 7 minutes making these earrings.
What took more time was to look through my large bead collection to find the beads I liked and dig out my jewelry making tools.
This pair is a Valentine’s Gift for a Girlfriend.
