Bead Project TypeEarrings
- 1mm gold colored wire
- Two red bugle beads
- Two 6mm white pearl beads
- A pair of gold-plated earwires
- Two eyepins
- Two headpins
- Round-nose pliers
- Wire cutters
- Flat-nose pliers
- Long-nose pliers
- Pinch one end of the wire with your flat-nose pliers, leaving a 1" tail. Begin wrapping the wire around the pliers. For reference, I made seven wraps in total. Next, slide off the wrapped wire from the pliers.
- Adjust the Christmas tree spiral to your liking. I chose to make it shorter. Trim the wire to about 2”.
- Make a loop at the bottom of the Christmas tree spiral using round-nose pliers. It is easier to make the loop by holding the spiral with another pair of pliers. Trim any excess.
- Create a loop at the top of the Christmas tree spiral. Trim any excess wire.
- Repeat last four steps for other Christmas tree spiral. Make any adjustments so both Christmas tree spirals are the same height.
- Slide a bugle bead onto a headpin and form a loop at the top. Attach the bugle bead drop to the bottom loop of a Christmas tree spiral. Repeat with other bugle bead.
- Slide a pearl bead onto an eye pin. Form a loop and trim the excess. Attach one end of the eye pin to the top loop on the Christmas tree spiral and the other end to the loop on the ear wire.
- Repeat last step for other earring.

What an adorable idea. It's so easy. You can make them as shown or in any color you want. They have aluminum wire in every color of the rainbow. I would put a yellow Crystal bead on the top or a clear irredescent one to represent the star. And a brown one as the stump.

What a great Christmas present this will make for yourself a friend or a family member and with this video it shows you how to make this wire Christmas tree earrings easily. These earrings are so cute and would look great everyday and pair it with a necklace using this wire Christmas would complete any outfit for the Christmas season. I am so glad I found it so I can get a head start for Christmas. I am going to see if I can find some star beads to use a top on the tree. Anyone know where I can find any star beads for top of Christmas tree?

The directions call for 1 mm of gold wire, while no specific length is called for, the designer says "For reference, I made seven wraps in total" which gives one a pretty good idea just make the wraps, then measure the 2" before you cut off the wire. These make delightful earrings for Christmas and could be used as tree ornaments too

I was going to try this but had a question about how much wire and what gaauge was reqired, that plus the poor review of video made me decide against it.

The video was blurry at times and too fast. The person doing the video moved out of view of the camera a few times. I tried to make this by the video but could not follow the video.
