How to create a pair of christmas wreath earrings with Swarovski Bicones

With some 6mm bicones, Artistic wire, some silver findings and a bow you can create your own pair of our traditional Christmas Wreath Earrings. The entire set of earrings can be put together in less than 30 minutes using tools every beader should have on hand.

Materials Needed
  • 32 - 6mm Emerald Bicones
  • 4 - 4mm Light Siam Bicones
  • 1 Pair of Sterling Silver Ear Wires
  • 2 - Pewter Bows
  • 2 - Head Pins
  • Artistic Wire
  • 2 - Sterling Silver Jump Rings

Holiday Wreath Instructions


Step 1: Start by loading a 4mm light siam bicone, bow, and additional light siam bicone onto a headpin and create a wrap.
Load your 4mm Bicones and Bows on to your headpin

Step 2: Using your artistic wire make your first loop on one end, then add a 2mm seamless bead, 16 of the 6mm emerald bicones, and another 2mm seamless bead. Now make another loop at the other end, being sure that both are in the same direction. Now nip off excess artistic wire and repeat for the other earring.



Step 3: Gently form it into a circle with either your fingers or you can use a bottle cap for assistance, repeat for both.




Step 4: Double check and make sure both of your loops are facing the same way, then open your 5.5mm jump ring. Run it through one loop, add your bow, and then run it through the other loop and close your jump ring. Repeat for your second earring.



Step 5: Now you'll open your ear wires and attach them onto the jump rings, then closing them back up and completing your earrings.
