Antique Brass Dangle Earrings

Who else here is ready to put away the sweaters and start wearing some spring fashions?  It’s still too frigid around here to pull out my sandals and short sleeves, but I’ve noticed in the style magazines that statement earrings are going to be popular this season, so I thought I’d make myself a pair.

– Antique Bronze Earring bases {these are from}
– Antique Bronze head pins and ear wires
– 14 small turquoise beads 
– 2 larger turquoise beads
– Jewelry tools: needle nose pliers, flat pliers, wire cutters

STEP 1: Place your bead on a head pin.

STEP 2: Use pliers to bend your wire 90 degrees just above the top of your bead.

STEP 3: Wrap wire back around the pliers to form a loop.  Cut off excess.

STEP 4: Open loop by twisting with your pliers {never by pulling apart} and attach it to one of the openings on the earring base.  Repeat until all 7 beads are around the bottom and one is in the top.

 STEP 5: Attach ear wires; again you want to open the loop on the ear wire by twisting to the side rather than pulling apart.  

That’s all there is to it!  Simple, bold statement earrings just in time for Spring!
What would you wear these with?  I’m thinking about trying them with the outfit I put together the other day for my coral/road cone orange skirt.  Did you see it on Instagram?  What do you think?  Is it too much?  I’m counting on your opinion…friends don’t let friends look like road cones.
Hugs & Glitter,
