Need to come up with a design for my soldering class this weekend. What should I create? A bracelet, earrings or necklace? Hmm…decisions, decisions, decisions!

Are you looking for a unique Christmas gift to give to a friend, co-worker or family member? Check out these really cute vintage X-mass tree earrings that I designed. The earrings are available for purchase in my Etsy store http://www.etsy.com/shop/ElliesBijoux or if you are really crafty, I have listed the supplies needed and instructions below. Happy Beading!
Supplies - 8 green, 4 red or 4 green, 4 red, and 4 white 4X6 Lucite Flower Beads depending on which pair. 2 red Swarovski bicone beads and 1 clear Crystal or black Swarovski cube bead. The Lucite flowers and Swarovski crystals are available at www.bellomodo.com. I used Vintaj Natural Brass findings so I could achieve that vintage look that I so love! Vintaj products can be purchased at Hobby Lobby or AC Moore. I used 2 eye pins, 2 head pins and 2 ear wires. You will also need Bead Stringing Glue which is available at (www.beadalon.com) or any local craft store. This will help secure the Lucite beads in place.
Take one head pin and add 1 Swarovski cube bead, make simple loop, and attach to eye pin. Now take the eye pin and add a dab of glue at base, string 1 Lucite bead. Keep repeating until you have strung 6 Lucite beads. Finally, add 1 Swarovski bicone bead at top and make wrapped loop. Attach to ear wire. Repeat steps for second tree.
