Pretty Crystal Snowflake Earrings
Make it a white Christmas, with these Pretty Crystal Snowflake Earrings. This tutorial will show you how to make snowflake earrings, by bending silver wire around clear crystal bicone beads. Clear crystals are a great choice for DIY bead jewelry because the crystals will catch the light as you move around; you're sure to leave a beautiful, shimmering path as you pass people by. This is a wonderful jewelry making idea, especially if you find yourself snowed in at home. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Because 28g wire is easily broken if overworked, be careful not to overtwist the wires in this project. If the wire does happen to break, end the wire off by wrapping it around the silver ring a couple of times to secure it. Then, start with a new wire and anchor it in the same way.
