FREE Shining Star Earrings Jewelry Making Tutorial Blogpost
It looks like a wheel at first, but we’d like to call it the shining star as the wires crossing each other at the middle resembles the points of a star.
Let’s begin with the project with the following materials. Like I said, you can make the earrings big or smaller and use any size of beads and/or bicones you prefer. With the following materials, the earrings’ size is about 1 inch in diameter.
Materials and tools:
2 ear wires
10 x 4mm bicone crystals
1mm (18 ga) copper wire
0.32mm (28 ga) copper wire
round nose pliers
mandrel or any rounded object
Step 4: Cut approx. 30 inch 28 ga wire. Crossing the center of the earring frame and in between 2 bicones, wrap around the earring frame 2 – 3 times neatly. Then bring the wire down the center of the earring frame, parallel the last bicone and wrap once in between 2 bicones.
